Horsham bridge to spur future development

Posted on by in News

Spanning the A264 in north Horsham, West Sussex, a steel footbridge provides a vital link between the £1bn Mowbray estate and the town centre.

Working on behalf of main contractor Natta Building, Nusteel Structures designed, fabricated, painted and erected more than 200t of steelwork for the bridge and its access ramps.

The bridge’s bow Vierendeel main span is 53m-long x 4.8m-wide and 5.4m-high at mid-span. The main span was fabricated and transported to site in sections, which were spliced together onsite, prior to being installed as a complete piece.

Once the main span was in place, approximately 150m of curved and straight twin-stringer 3.5m-wide approach ramps were installed.

Currently under construction, the new Mowbray estate consists of 2,750 homes, shops, businesses and a school, which will provide places for 1,620 pupils aged four to 16.
