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