Golden Jubilee Footbridges, London, UK
Abstract:The Golden Jubilee Footbridges are the stunning multi-span cable stayed footbridges that span the River Thames in Central London, on either side of the existing Hungerford Railway Bridge. The two footbridges provide a direct link for pedestrians from Waterloo Station and the South Bank Arts and Entertainment Complex with Charing Cross Station and London?s West End on the North Embankment. The technique of incrementally launching the bridge deck provided significant time and cost savings and enabled the deck construction to progress in parallel with the fabrication and erection of the steelwork pylons and restraint elements, whilst minimising disruption to the navigable waterway below.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
