Bath Quays Bridge Technical Talk

Features: Bath Quays Bridge

website bath talk

The new crossing point for pedestrians and cyclists over the River Avon in Bath was successfully lifted into place at Bath Quays in November 2021. The 60-metre long and 140-tonne Vierendeel trussed bridge is the first new river crossing point to be established in the city for 100 years.

It all started with an international design competition back in 2015 and 7 years later, the project is nearly complete. Webb Yates senior structural engineer, Chloe Newmann will talk about the design, fabrication and installation of the bridge and some of the challenges that have been faced to get this far.

Working in collaboration with Marc Mimram Architecture et Associes, we designed this new bridge for our client Bath and North East Somerset Council.

The talk is taking place online at 6:00 - 7:00pm on Thursday 22an February.
