A new footbridge in Derby will open to the public next week - even though a steel shortage has delayed the unveiling of some design features.
The project has seen some delays
The project has encountered some construction delays so lighting and public artwork are not ready.
Project leader Phil Masey said St Mary's bridge was "safe and useable" and would be "an important link for the people of Derby".
About 1,200 people a day will use the bridge, which replaces an old one.
"Some of the public art features such as the bobbins on each end of the bridge will not be ready," Mr Massey said.
Council spokesman Andy Smart said the £1.3m project, which spans St Alkmund's Way in Derby, has been managed within its budget.
He added it was "a brilliant job" to get the old bridge removed and a new one in its place in 14 weeks.
