Today, after 6 months of renovation works, Tartu Arc bridge was reopened again. Renovation costs of the bridge were estimated about 780 000 euros. Extraordinary lighting and sound composition was also created for the bridge by master students of the Academy of Arts. So, exclusive soundtracks by five different composers can be heard every day and those music sets are composed in the harmony with bells ringing in the tower of Town Hall. Those musical compositions will be played five times a day, once in 3 hours from 9:03am to 9:03pm. Each composition is supported by special lighting solution, also created by the authors. Both, light and sound solutions, are specially composed for Tartu Arc bridge.
All the main structures of the pedestrian bridge, built at the end of the 50’s, were repaired during the renovation works and the bridge was also enlarged on both sides by a meter. Sidewalk connecting two shore promenades was built under the Arc bridge as well.
The reconstruction project of the Arc bridge was developed by Tinter-Projekt LLC, reconstruction works were carried out by AS TREV-2 Grupp and the owner supervision was performed by Taalri Varahaldus LTD.
