PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The first network arch footbridge in the UK, comprising three spans and standing 120m long.

The design responds to the myriad of constraints including spanning over operational Network Rail lines.
 
 

 

Judge's comment:

This striking 'network' arched bridge resolves many competing design considerations into a simple, elegant, and efficient form, demonstrating both creativity and innovation by the team.

Careful considerations for constructability and zero maintenance were balanced against functional performance during design, ultimately influencing the final bridge form and materials selection.

The highly collaborative process involving multiple stakeholders and community resulted in a bridge that improves safety in the community, reduces overcrowding to the nearby train station, and creates a positive identity for the local area.
