Bath Quays Bridge will allow the fully connected development of a previously overlooked quayside district, Bath Quays, linking it to the City centre and opening up new riverside leisure and cultural opportunities alongside new commercial activities.

The regeneration of Bath Quays will form the basis for a new business location for the growing ICT, low carbon and creative sectors within the city.

The six participating design teams are led by:

– AL_A
– Flint & Neill
– Grimshaw
– Heneghan Peng
– Marc Mimram
– Price & Myers

Commissioning a new bridge for Bath

Given its importance, and the significance of its location in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Council has chosen an international design competition as the means to select a design for the bridge, and the competition designs have now been received from the six shortlisted design teams.
