Rolling Bridge

Designed by Heatherwick Studio, this rolling bridge (2005 British Structural Steel Award Winner)is located within a new residential, office and retail quarter set around part of the Grand Union Canal in Paddington Basin, London.

12 meters long, the bridge is made in 8 steel and timber sections, and is made to curl by hydraulic rams set into the handrail between each section.
