Bridging the gap between town and country

The concept design for a new twin cable-stayed pedestrian footbridge across the river Trent at Gainsborough in Lincolnshire was revealed this week.

The £6M S-shaped structure is designed by former Wilkinson Eyre bridge designer Oliver Houchell with engineering by Toby Maclean of TALL Consulting Structural Engineers. The new link is the result of a 13-year campaign by the Gainsborough Stakeholder Network to link the town with the Beckingham Marshes wildlife haven.
