Knight completes Stratford bridge project

[First look] High Wycombe-based bridge specialists Knight Architects completed a new footbridge over railway tracks in Stratford, east London

The Ruckholt Road weathering steel scheme for client Waltham Forest Borough Council was officially opened this week by the local authority’s leader Chris Robbins.

The new, 60 metre-long crossing creates a pedestrian and cycle route over Network Rail and Eurostar railway tracks and a local road, connecting Waltham Forest with the Eton Manor Olympic Site.

Knight Architects has completed nine new bridges in the area as part of plans to improve local infrastructure in time for the Olympics.

The 3 metre-wide deck is enclosed by structural webs, which vary in inclination from five degrees at their ends to 15 degrees at mid-span.

The structural engineer was Hyder, the contractor was Balfour Beatty and the contractor’s designer was Tony Gee & Partners.
