The new bridge provides access to Hackney Marshes from Mandeville Street and replaces an existing concrete bridge structure. The existing bridge was closed to vehicular traffic because of inadequate shear reinforcement in the main span and had abutments that were too steep to comply with current DDA requirements. Webb Yates Engineers' solution was to remove the existing span and replace it with a lightweight elastometric composite steel deck and to sling a lightweight pedestrian bridge along the side of the existing bridge at a lower level.
