Sheppey Crossing (Summary)

               Sheppey Crossing.jpg

This 1270m long multi-girder steel composite viaduct with 19 spans rises to 30m over the River Swale to allow ship passage, yet the sweeping curved low profile deck minimises intrusion into the flat landscape. By using modern fabrication facilities and forging a team of the designers, main contractor and steelwork contractor, the high level bridge was fabricated and erected within programme and budget. Opened in 2006, the Sheppey Crossing provides the first fixed link from mainland Kent to the Isle of Sheppey.
