Millennium Footbridge, Dublin

A competition winning design for a new portal framed pedestrian bridge. The central steel structure was fabricated with solid chords to appear as slender as possible, hidden reinforced concrete haunches. The bridge's curved precast concrete abutments were built from a floating pontoon in the river. Only a single road closure was needed to install the 41m steel truss, which was transported and installed in a single piece. 

Completed 1999.
