Moxon completes swinging Greenwich bridge

  • Comment

Moxon has completed this £3.5million swing bridge across the Deptford Creek at Greenwich Reach, south east London

The link, which is backed by developer Galliard Homes and was designed with engineers Flint and Neill, closes one of the last remaining gaps in the Thames Path on the south bank of the river.

Driven open by four electrical drive motors on ‘a slewing ring-bearing system’ usually used on tower cranes, the 44m main span swings across the creek at high tide allowing aggregate barges up river to the local ready-mix batching plant.
