Contractors lifted three prefabricated steel trusses into place to support a cycle bridge over the River Bann in Colraine, Northern Ireland, just before the Easter break. Designed by consultant Dr IG Doran & Partners, the structure is supported by concrete filled steel tubes driven into rock.

The top chords of three prefabricated trusses will be welded together to form a continuous structure. Main contractor for the project is Grahams, steel fabricator is PF Copeland. The project was funded jointly by cycling charity Sustrans, NI Roads Service and Coleraine Borough Council.
