Judge’s comment:

‘The judges were impressed by the elegant simplicity of the bridge which has been thoughtfully detailed to fit perfectly into the surrounding landscape whilst, at the same time, creating a landmark structure.  The steel box superstructure was well chosen to suit the segmental erection methodology, to provide aerodynamic stability and to provide smooth lines to the deck, reducing its apparent depth.’
