Paddington Basin's rolling bridge was one of this year's Structural Steel Design Award winners, sponsored by the British Constructional Steelwork Association, Corus and The Steel Construction Institute. The 12.9m long footbridge is fixed at one end with hydraulic rams which roll and unroll the deck, opening it in minutes. Designer was Thomas Heatherwick, structural engineer SKM Anthony Hunts and Packman Lucas. Contractor was Littlehampton Welding for client Chelsfield.
Other award winners were the River Usk crossing on the M4 in Newport, The Wellcome Trust's Gibb Building in London, Channel Tunnel Rail Link's Midland Mainline Bridge Deck A and the Tower Environs Scheme at the Tower of London.
