GRAHAM’s Carpenters Land Bridge project in running for ICE London Awards- Vote Now

A project from civil engineering and construction specialist GRAHAM that connects London’s East Bank to its International Quarter is in the running for several prestigious ICE London Awards, with voting now open.

The contractor has been shortlisted and is eligible for its project ‘Carpenters Land Bridge’, a vital pedestrian and cycle bridge that will link the £1.1 billion East Bank culture and education district on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to International Quarter London.

The project saw GRAHAM’s civil engineering teams design and install a 66m long steel bridge, formed of a portal frame and bearings, a concrete cill beam and bearings within an existing retaining wall structure, that crosses both Network Rail and Docklands Light Railways lines.
