Kingerlee Builds Bridges in Oxford


Kingerlee Install New Bridge for Pembroke CollegeOxford based Kingerlee have recently lowered a new bridge into place across one of Oxford’s most historic streets. It is believed to be the first new bridge over one of Oxford’s historic city centre streets since the Bridge of Sighs a century ago.

The bridge links The Fellows Garden on the existing Pembroke campus to Kingerlee’s new £17m Brewer Street Project. It also spans the ancient City Wall before springing across Brewer Street to its landing point over five metres above the road below.

The 10.2m structure is predominantly made from Corten steel which is left to oxidise following the bead blasting process.

The bridge base structure will also receive a glass balustrade which is sandwiched by stainless steel handrails cambered to the arc of the bridge structure.

Kingerlee are due to complete the Brewer Street Project in preparation for the start of the autumn academic year.
