The Jerusalem Chords Bridge was completed in 2008. It is part of the city’s new lightrail system, located close to the central bus station. The bridge is a modern take on the ancient David’s harp. The bridge was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
Batya photographed the bridge from a different view point here. Called Gesher HaMeitarim in Hebrew, it was quite pricey to build. You can see photos of the bridge crowded with pedestrians in green shirts marching for special needs education on the blog Real Jerusalem Streets.
