Isle of Man Ferry Terminal Bridge
Client: Peel L&P
Role: Quantity Surveyor
The project will see the conversion of an existing dam, that sits between Princess Dock and the new IOM Ferry Terminal, into a pedestrian footbridge. The bridge will be one of the main access and egress routes to and from the ferry terminal providing a connection through to the Liverpool Waterfront area. The project will also provide a new speed table and pedestrian crossing across the nearby Process Parade loop road to ensure the safety of its users.
Due to the location of the bridge and incoming high winds from the River Mersey that are intensified by the surrounding buildings, a robust wind mitigation strategy was designed for the bridge with the installation of a 2m high wind barrier along the side of the bridge.
