Christchurch Bridge

A collaborative design between Peter Brett Associates and Design Engine Architects, the new bridge links Reading town centre with its railway station. 

The structure is conceived as a single tapering mast in balance with the main deck which touches down onto Christchurch Meadows. The slender steel deck is supported by 14 pairs of cables, with a river span of 68m and a land span of 54m supported by a mast of 39m height located above the north bank of the River Thames. Where the bridge reaches the southern towpath the balustrading is fabricated from weathering steel echoing the form of the reeds along the edge of the river Thames in this location.
