About the Cody Dock Rolling Bridge
Designed by Tom Randall-Page with engineering support from Price and Myers and fabrication by Cake Industries, the contemporary design of Cody Dock Rolling Bridge is an exciting new twist on a moving bridge whilst celebrating the surrounding area’s rich historical links with Edwardian industrial design and local iron production.
The Cody Dock Rolling Bridge provides accessibility for pedestrians, cyclists, and boats in an ex-industrial facility built in 1871. The weathering steel and oak structure aims to help regenerate the former coal-handling area of Cody Dock and to reactivate a currently underused community asset, Lea River Park, and Cody Wilds.
The Cody Dock Rolling Bridge was the winner of The Bridges Design Award 2023.
