Hungerford Millennium Footbridge

  • Comment

The wheel of fortune has turned for Lifschutz Davidson's £40 million Hungerford Millennium Footbridge.

The first of the two spans opened this week after delays and design changes. It stretches 315m across the River Thames and is supported by 26m-high pylons and cables. Director Alex Lifschutz said it was a fantastic achievement despite problems caused by digging close to tunnels and the dropping of smaller features such as link bridges. The other span is due for completion in the autumn and both will carry seven million people a year. The practice worked with engineer WSP Group after winning a global competition.
