Cutter Ferry Footbridge

Whilst working for Mandall Engineering Ltd, David Price project managed the manufacture and installation of this new footbridge, joining the De Freville area of Cambridge over the River Cam to Midsummer Common.

It is located next to the Emmanuel College Boat House. The original Cutter Ferry Bridge was closed in 2003 after an inspection deemed it to be unsafe. A new warren brace foot and cycle bridge was installed in 2005 with improved access for wheel chair use. The bridge is 30m long and weighs approximately 20 tonnes.
