A63 Princes Quay Footbridge, Hull
Highways England are building a landmark pedestrian footbridge, accessible to cyclists and wheelchair users, crossing the A63 between Princes Dock to the north and Hull Marina to the south. The 60m long arched structure designed by Matter Architecture and Arup features a dramatic curved canopy which will provide shelter for users. The bridge was fabricated at our facility in Sherburn-in-Elmet and then assembled close to the the site in a temporary assembly yard. In November 2019 the completed 150te structure was transported using SPMT’s to it’s final location and rotated through 90 degrees before being lowered onto it’s concrete piers. This operation required meticulous planning but was completed successfully with the road being opened to the public 15 hours ahead of time. As the landscaping is progressed our works will be completed with the installation of the access ramps and stairs.
