The first glass reinforced plastic bridge to be built over a trunk road was lifted into place over the A30 near Bodmin in Cornwall this week. The 50m suspension bridge built by Balfour Beatty was designed by Flint & Neill Partnership with Wilkinson Eyre Architects. The twin cable bridge features a glass reinforced plastic deck suspended from conventional steel masts. The bridge completes a link in the 290km Cornish Way which is part of the National Cycle Network.
