Wrocław's Bridges: 9. Słodowa Bridge

I'm including Most Słodowy simply for completeness, and because it is the only road crossing onto the Słodowa island.

There are a series of islands at this point in Wrocław, within the boundaries of the River Oder, and for most of the town's history, access to them has been limited. The construction of two footbridges (both of which I'll come to soon) in recent years has greatly improved accessibility.

The present structure is a temporary Bailey bridge, with a separate pedestrian walkway to one side. It spans only about 8m. From what I can determine, this must be relatively recent, as most of the information on the internet and linked below refers to a steel beam structure which is clearly no longer there.
