Seeking the Isambard of the 21st century

ENGINEERS OF all ages were this week challenged to get involved in a re-run of the 1830 design competition for the Clifton Suspension bridge.

The competition is being held to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the bridge's original designer.

It was launched at Civils 2005 on Tuesday.

Using the original 1830 competition brief, engineers must come up with an innovative crossing using modern-day technologies.

The competition has been developed by University of Bristol and NCE as part of the Brunel 200 celebrations in 2006.

INFOPLUS Another highlight of the Brunel 200 is the Brunel Bicentenary Conference, also launched at Civils 2005.

For more information on both of these events see p16.
