Winning ways to stop deaths

Industrial designers and architects are being invited to enter a competition to design ways of deterring would-be suicides from jumping off Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Designed by Brunel, the bridge opened near Bristol in 1864 and has provided a departure point for an average of ten suicide leaps each year since.

The Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust is seeking designs for both physical measures and non-physical means or a combination of the two.

There is a prize pool of 6500 with a first prize of 3000 and a 500 student prize. Entry details are available from the Royal Institute of British Architects competitions office on 0113 234 1335.
