Adur Ferry Bridge, Shoreham Harbour

An impressive new structure, with a 50-metre rotating central span, was opened in 2013, replacing the previous 1920s narrow concrete footbridge. It accommodates pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair/mobility scooter users.

BS Steels is proud to have been involved in this iconic local landmark. Working with project leaders Osborne, BS Steels provided steel bracing to maintain the old bridge for traffic during early stage works on the replacement. We also provided various other on-site services, including extensive welding, cutting and fabrication. Our steel fabrication services were called upon to create both permanent and temporary platforms for piling rigs, and for access to all the main monopiles, including that supporting the central section. We also created the navigation light support brackets, and were called in to assist with manufacture and installation of the stainless steel balustrades.

The video gives an excellent introduction to the bridge and some of the engineering challenges met during the project, including tidal extremes of up to 7 metres!
