Steel tackles rugby stadium footbridge

Posted on by in News

Work is nearing completion on a new landmark structure linking St Helens town centre to a new rugby league stadium.

The design and build scheme by main contractor Galliford Try will deliver the 4m wide, 54.6m long St Helens Linkway East Footbridge. The deck of the steel composite bridge is hung from arches constructed of circular hollow steel sections 610mm in diameter and 20.6mm thick. Viewed from above, the bridge’s arches will form the shape of a rugby ball.

Steelwork contractor for the project is Rowecord Engineering.
