London's Timpson Manley has built an 8m wide steel ramp to smooth the path for runners in this Sunday's London marathon. The metal ramp, costing £30,000, will keep runners from breaking their stride as they pass over a flight of steps at Cutty Sark Gardens, which was recently refurbished by the practice and won a Civic Trust Award this year. Around 16,000 runners will pound over the ramp, which is about five miles from the start, including architects Ben John and Chris Harrison from ORMS, and RIBA gallery assistant Helen Finnemore.
