The Royal Victoria Dock Footbridge


The Royal Victoria Dock Footbridge

The Royal Victoria Dock Footbridge was a key element in the regeneration of the Royal Victoria Dock, creating a new link across the dock and facilitation the development of facilities such as the Excel Centre.

The brief requirement was to ‘reveal’ the bridge and its structure at night so that its presence as a London landmark was increased. safety and security was also a key requirement, ensuring that the bridge could comfortably used by pedestrians during the hours of darkness.

All of this was undertaken in a location that was very close to London City Airport and indeed occurred on one of the airports main flight paths.
