Media City Footbridge - Salford MediaCityUK

Media City footbridge forms a visual landmark and sculptural gateway to the vibrant MediaCityUK site, part of the Salford Quays regeneration on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal. Together with our partners we designed a bridge that met the dual 20m headroom requirements for ships and achieved “landmark” designation.
