Highways Agency

  • Comment

The Highways Agency has lifted into place this glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) bridge over the A30 trunk road in Bodmin, Cornwall. The unique 50m suspension Halgovor Bridge, designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and Flint & Neill Partnership, features a GRP deck suspended from conventional steel masts and a twin cable system. The scheme, which weighs less than 400kg/m and was installed by Balfour Beatty during a 24-hour road closure, completes a link in the 180 mile Cornish Way, part of the National Cycle Network.
