Fabian Way Bridge is shortlisted for Structural Steel Design Awards 


Studio Bednarski’s leaf-shaped Fabian Way Bridge has been shortlisted for the 2008 Structural Steel Design Awards. The awards, which are sponsored by the British Constructional Steelwork Association, look at both the structural engineering and the planning and architecture of the structure considering factors including durability, architectural excellence, environmental impact and skill and workmanship of the British entries.

Fabian Way Bridge is located at the edge of Port Tennant, Swansea, providing a gateway to the Welsh city. The leaf-shaped mast on the structure conceals the cable attachments and a spinal beam separates a bus route from the pedestrian walkway.

Studio Bednarski were commissioned by City and County Swansea for this project and specialise in bridge design for contracts throughout the UK. The bridge was completed in 2007 at a cost of £3.5 million. Results of the competition will be announced in July.
