Murdoch’s Connection Bridge, Hull

New footbridge to improve pedestrian and cycle connection over the heavily trafficked A63 road in Hull city centre. The design includes extensive landscaped public spaces at each side.

The bridge creates a distinctive new landmark and gateway to the Old Town. With integrated soft and hard landscaped spaces at the approaches, the design provides a variety of new routes and places for people to enjoy the journey, and new views over the city and docks.
