Scale Lane Footbridge, Hull

This openable 50m pedestrian footbridge crosses the river Hull and forms one of the key elements of the masterplanning within the city centre development area by enhancing the regeneration of the river Hull and its eastern river bank.

The bridge has been conceived as a place for people to inhabit and enjoy Hull’s riverscape, not just a way across it. Its form is sleek, sensuous and brightly coloured, and its curvaceous horizontality complements the verticality of the existing and proposed riverside architecture.
