Active Travel Cycleway Bridge, Newtown

The aim of the new 60 metre span bridge Active Travel Cycleway Bridge in Newtown was to link the north and south sides of the River Severn to aid ‘green’ travel and convenient access to local businesses.

The final design comprised of a twin arch bridge with cable supported deck. The steel structure would incorporate lightweight fibre reinforced polymer deck panels and nine metre high arches which would minimise the impact of the bridge on the surrounding environment.

The bridge was being constructed by long standing clients of ours, so CDD Ltd was appointed to undertake the RC Detailing of the bridge abutments.
