Winner of RIBA Salford Bridge competition

We are very pleased to announce that our design for a new bridge in Salford has won a RIBA design competition that saw 172 entries from 31 countries. The design was the product of a close collaboration between architects at Tonkin Liu and structural engineers from Arup. Competition Adviser Renato Benedetti of bridge specialists McDowell + Benedetti said: ‘Tonkin Liu with Arup are worthy winners - their unique bridge is poetic, innovative and elegantly engineered with sinuous curves seamlessly linking the Meadows with the new public space to be created. Its sculptural qualities ensure it will be a joy to look at and to use, becoming an inspirational new urban marker for Salford.’
