Three-legged bridge for canalside marina

Posted on by in News

Working on behalf of main contractor Land & Water, S H Structures has fabricated and supplied a 35m-long bridge for the Newlands Marina project near Milton Keynes.

Designed by Knight Architects and Cowi for Crest Nicholson Regeneration, the firm behind a mixed-use development beside the Grand Union Canal, the bridge crosses the waterway at right angles, aligned with the marina entrance, and over the last third of its length, the deck branches in two parts to form a Y-shape in plan.

The bridge is made out of weathering steel with a laser cut steel balustrade system, featuring panels cut to resemble riverside reeds and grasses.
