The New Runnymede Bridge

The paper describes the design and construction of the new bridge over the Thames at Runnymede next to the bridge designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. Several different types of structure were investigated, and models were used to study the visual relationships with the older bridge. The new bridge consists of four frames of white concrete which were constructed in halves on the banks, slid into position, and joined together. W.J.R. Smyth, R. Benaim and D. H. Philpott
