The Town Centre Link Bridge, which has been successfully pushed over 11 live railway lines at Stratford Station, touched down on the other side of the tracks this week and reached one step closer to serving millions of spectators during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Both before the Games and in legacy it will provide a vital link from the existing town centre to Westfield’s £1.45bn Stratford City Project.
In an unprecedented feat of engineering, the 1,600 tonne, 128m long and 14m wide bridge touched down in Stratford.
John Armitt, Chairman for the ODA said:
"The town centre link bridge is crucial to getting millions of spectators from Stratford Town Centre to the other side, into the Olympic Park. It will play a key role during the Games and will play a key role in legacy, allowing residents and commuters to walk freely from one side to the other."
