Eadon, in partnership with Buro Happold and Moxon Architects, is playing a pivotal role in the development of an impressive new pedestrian and cycle bridge at London’s Royal Victoria Dock. Spanning 305 metres, this step-free crossing will serve as a crucial link, connecting the ExCel Centre and Custom House station on the north side of the dock to the expansive Silvertown development.
At the heart of the bridge’s design is its distinctive ‘Double S-curve’ configuration, which not only enhances its visual appeal but also maximises the efficiency of the crossing. Additionally, the inclusion of a double bascule mechanism at the midpoint allows the middle section of the bridge to be lifted, enabling the seamless passage of large vessels through the dock without any interruptions. Eadon’s role is to support the mechanical and electrical design of this equipment. We have successfully completed RIBA Stage 3, delivering initial concept design drawings, and assisted in the submission of the successful Planning application. Looking ahead, we anticipate progressing to RIBA Stage 4 soon, marking the next phase of this exciting project.
With a proven track record of successful partnerships, such as the Greenwich Reach Swing Bridge alongside Moxon and the Lille Langebro Swing Bridge with Buro Happold in Copenhagen, we are thrilled to be involved in this collaboration.
