Trinity Bridge, Salford :: Shared Description

The Trinity footbridge linking Manchester and Salford was designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The £1.9m footbridge, named for the nearby Trinity Church (SJ8398 : Sacred Trinity Church, Salford), was opened in 1995 and connects the recently-developed Chapel Wharf area with the city centre. The whole structure rests on one single, 41metre tall pylon, leaned over at a rakish angle, from which the suspending tension cables hang down to suspend the footbridge deck beneath. Perhaps, not the most efficient design for a suspension bridge, but certainly a spectacular one visually.

Trinity Bridge was one of Calatrava's earliest bridge works and, to date, remains the only project he has completed in the United Kingdom.
