Airport taxiway longest bridge in the world

  • Comment

This new air-passenger bridge at Gatwick, designed by Wilkinson Eyre and Arup, was officially unveiled on Monday 16 May. Nearly 200m long, the 2,700-tonne structure is the longest bridge in the world to span an airport taxiway, and the only one outside America.

The bridge, which towers almost 32m over the tarmac at its highest point, will allow the largest commercial aircraft currently in service to taxi beneath the feet of air travellers as they move between the airport's north terminal and the new Pier 6 satellite building.
