Structure will link area close to city’s railway station with nearby Enterprise Zone

Work on 50m long Y-shaped bridge over the river Avon in Bristol has been completed by Knight Architects and south Wales contractor Andrew Scott.

The £3m pedestrian and cycle bridge was commissioned by the city council and is designed to improve links between the city’s Temple Meads railway station and a nearby Enterprise Zone.

Called St Philips Footbridge, the structure has been designed to disguise the differences in height between its two ends.

Structural engineer was Jacobs while steel fabricator was Leeds firm SH Structures.
