Construction of Ponte della Musica, a dual purpose pedestrian and public transport bridge crossing the substantial River Tiber in Rome, opened in mid 2011. This major crossing joins the banks of the River Tiber between the Foro Italico and the area of Flaminio. The bridge is a key part of the Rome city plan which involves the development of a new east-west axis along the Via Guido Reni on the east bank of the Tiber. It connects various cultural and sporting facilities of the Flaminio district with the Olympic stadium and other sports facilities on the west bank in Monte Mario. The scheme consists of two inclined steel arches supporting a steel deck.
