The footbridge is part of Urban Splash’s development of the Millenium Community initiative for New Islington in Manchester. The design aims to create an intriguing addition to complement the historic canal side warehouses of Ancoats and the contemporary architecture of the new development.
The footbridge is designed to run over the Rochdale Canal connecting three crossing points with limited clearances in a fluid and economical structure. The truss is the bridge’s main structural support and is clad using a bespoke perforated metal design.
