Network Rail Beacon Bridge goes to Site

Apr '24

In 2018 Network Rail set out on a program of improving its designs for railway station footbridges. The objective was to develop designs for stations that are fully accessible, user friendly and visually appealing. Davies Maguire was the structural engineer on two designs where we produced designs that are now standards within Network Rail – the ‘Beacon’ and the ‘Frame’ – working with Haskoll Architects and Gottlieb Paludan Architects respectively.

All designs have covered or uncovered deck options, and the first uncovered Beacon bridge is currently being constructed in Garforth. The integral lift shafts and staircases are in evidence, with the construction process awaiting the introduction of the main span. We will keep updating as progress continues on site.
