TRADA Case Study: Far Moor Bridge
A unique timber bridge, a combination of stress-laminated arches and screw-laminated deck, crosses the River Ribble in remote moorland near Ribblehead in the Yorkshire Dales. Here the commissioning authority saw an opportunity to build a comparably iconic structure which would also be environmentally sustainable and low budget.
The case study describes the design, material selection, cost, the ecological benefits and the overall sustainability of the scheme.
