Softroom’s first bridge project, the 20m Leeds Liverpool Canal Pennington Road Footbridge, has been granted planning permission by Sefton Council. The bridge form follows a typology of canal bridges, with a sustainable timber structure, and will restore a safe pedestrian link between new housing and the town centre. The structure is conceived as a pair of deep rectangular glulam beams placed within the balustrade zone of the bridge, fixed at the straight ramp sides in order to keep the overall depth as shallow and elegant as possible.
