Bridge opens up King’s Cross development
A new pedestrian and cycle bridge
that spans the Regent’s Canal in the heart of London’s King’s Cross development has been officially opened.
Designed by Moxon Architects, the 38m-span bridge forms a vital link between Camley Street and an area of retail, residential and office schemes.
Working on behalf of main contractor Carillion, S H Structures fabricated the bridge structure from 15mm steel plate at its works in North Yorkshire.
Once fabricated, the bridge was trial assembled before being sent to site in four individual sections.
Assembled on-site, the completed 55t bridge was lifted into place using a 750t-capacity mobile crane.
The bridge was installed on 4 May and officially opened to the public on 5 July.
