Parkway Bridge

The design is a conscious response to different natures and needs of the bridge’s users, and emerges from the site in a very natural way. The ‘slingshot’ form of the bridge is a product of a combination of working with the existing levels, the need to provide sufficient airspace over the road and to offer people using the bridge a unique and memorable experience as they pass from one to the other side.

The bridge is made from two principle elements; the main steel deck and the single steel mast. The mast is placed asymmetrically to avoid locating a primary element in the centre of the dual carriage way and also to facilitate the construction methodology of the bridge.
