Carpenters Land Bridge, London
Ainsworth Civils are working with GRAHAM to deliver a new pedestrian and cycle bridge – Carpenters Land Bridge – which will connect East Bank on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to the International Quarter London and provide an access route between Stratford and East Bank.
Spread across three sites on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, East Bank will be at the centre of a growing cluster of commerce, technology, manufacture, retail, education, culture and the creative industries, delivering 2,500 jobs, attracting 1.5m additional visitors a year and generating £1.5bn for the local economy.
Ainsworth Civils’ remit includes constructing the concrete structures over the National Rail and Docklands Light Railway lines, connecting both sides for pedestrian access.
On the East side (London College of Fashion) we are constructing two FRC columns, tied together with a FRC cross beam. On the West side (International Quarter London) we are constructing a Cill Beam abutment on an already existing concrete structure, as well as a Reckli finished concrete retaining wall, concrete chamber base with retaining walls, and a concrete parapet.
