Cork City Council viewed the development of a riverside walk and pedestrian bridge as a landmark project and entrusted FT to design and deliver this award winning bridge.

The bridge is a steel structure with a single span of approximately 57m.  A single asymmetric arch formed from a circular hollow section supports a 3m wide footway which is cantilevered from the bottom chord of the arch.  The abutments are simple reinforced concrete bankseats with architecturally shaped parapets,  founded on precast concrete piles, driven 10-15m below ground level.

The bridge is located at a quiet wooded area adjacent to the city centre, noted for its ecological diversity.  It spans the north channel of the River Lee, linking the Mardyke Walk area to the south with Sundays Well on the north bank.

As well as preparing the preliminary and detailed design, FT managed the tender process for the project.   €0.9M Key Facts: FT in conjunction with Gifford (now Ramboll UK) were appointed to design this landmark structure; a single span steel pedestrian bridge over the River Lee in Cork City.
