Crossing links Berkeley housing job with Maidenhead

Knight Architects and London engineer Cowi have completed work on a 35m long pedestrian and cycle bridge linking a homes and apartments scheme built by Berkeley Homes at Taplow in Buckinghamshire with Maidenhead on the other side of river Thames.

The shallow arch is designed to resemble Brunel’s nearby Maidenhead Bridge with steel fabrication work carried by Leeds firm SH Structures.

Main contractor on the scheme was Land & Water. Client was Berkeley, the firm behind the Taplow Riverside project, where prices range from £475,000 to £1.6m.
