Award winning designs
These footbridges were placed on either side of the Hungerford Bridge to celebrate the Golden Jubilee. Built to replace old bridges that were very narrow and considered dangerous, they have won engineering awards for their complicated design. The construction was difficult, with hazards like the subway tunnel under the river, the possibility of World War II era bombs in the river bed, and the rail traffic over Hungerford Bridge. The bridges are 4 feet wide and were completed in 2002. The views from them are really nice.
