This is an amazing footbridge over the River Hull in Kingston upon Hull, England, designed by McDowell+Benedetti Architects. This innovative swing bridge is winning entry in an international 3-stage design competition held in 2005. It brings a unique experience of riding on the bridge to the pedestrians while it opens and closes to river traffic.
Winner of international competition for a new opening bridge which acts as a focus for river regeneration, creating a new civic landmark and improving connection between the centre and eastern redevelopment. Uniquely it allows people the experience of riding on the bridge while it rotates. With Alan Baxter & Assoc. and Qualter Hall.
