Rusty country route

Bridges : Products and services

Shanks Millennium Bridge over the River Nene in Peterborough may look like someone forgot to paint it, but the weathered steel was a conscious choice.

Engineer Whitby Bird & Partners opted for the rusty effect to keep the 33.5m span structure in context with its rural setting.

The bridge carries pedestrian and cycle routes which form part of Peterborough's Green Wheel, a sustainable transport network. Client for the project is Peterborough Environmental City Trust.
