A twisting bridge to span Bristol’s Floating Harbour is the centrepiece of £5M-worth of new infrastructure planned by a local developer.
The new bridge would link the Finzels Reach development to nearby Castle Park and improve wider connections with the rest of the city. Finzel’s Reach is 2.5m lower than the other side.
Designed for pedestrians and cyclists, the bridge would be constructed in late spring next year, if the planning application is approved by Bristol City Council.
The timber-decked structure, incorporating steel balustrades and supporting columns, has been designed by Bristol-based architects The Bush Consultancy and engineers Clarke Bond.
The 90-metre long bridge will form a twisting, sloping route across the harbour, avoiding the need for steps and lifts.
The bridge would be fabricated off site and delivered in sections to the Floating Harbour.
Developer Cubex owns Finzels Reach, a mixture of office, leisure, and residential units.
