King's Cross is getting a seriously slim new footbridge

Isabelle Aron

Camden Council has approved plans for a new pedestrian bridge in King's Cross, which will be built over Regent's Canal to connect Camley Street to the new Gasholder Park. Moxon Architects have worked with engineers Arup to create a minimalist 38-metre crossing that doesn't require any support below the bridge to keep it standing. It also won't be taking up much space, as the base of the bridge is only 15mm thick at its narrowest point. The new super-slim crossing has been dubbed the Somers Town Bridge and will open in spring 2017.

In other bridge news, the Garden Bridge is one step closer to being built.
