With Expedition Engineering

Come and see this recently completed award-winning footbridge with a tour from a structural engineer from Expedition who helped build it! It was an incredibly complex project, involving work over live Network Rail lines which imposed serious design constraints as well as the need to manage multiple stakeholders and design it for zero-maintenance.

The bridge has won two awards at the 2019 ICE London Regional Awards: the Innovation and People's Choice Awards. The bridge connects Chiswick Park tube with the nearby Business Park and is drastically reducing overcrowding at the nearby Gunnersbury station. No PPE is necessary as the project is completed and we can see it in all its glory. We expect to be back on campus by 3pm at the latest.
