Salford Footbridge

This is a bridge in the spirit of simple bridges with minimal structure, leaving the emphasis on a sinuous bridge deck which becomes a singular sculptural form.

The ‘S’ shape deck floats above the river and seeks to exploit the site’s striking topography and views with the least intrusion from surrounding structure as possible.

The contoured form highlights movement and the flow of routes, bringing the language of the park to meet The Crescent. As it widens at each change of direction the deck invites resting and enjoyment of the River Irwell.
