This new bridge designed by Moxon Architects forms a vital link to the expanding development around London’s King’s Cross. The 38m span steel structure is formed from 15mm steel plate and was fabricated in our works in North Yorkshire. The bridge was fabricated and trial assembled in our factory before being sent to site in four individual sections. Despite the shallow profile of the deck the design still allowed for the provision of tuned mass dampers at mid-span. The 55te completed assembly was lifted into place using a 750te capacity mobile crane. This slender structure clearly demonstrates that is possible to design something with both elegance and economy. This is the second bridge we have completed for Moxon Architects having previously worked with the team on their Greenwich Reach Swing bridge project. Please follow the YouTube link on our homepage to some time-lapse footage of the installation.
