Second award for bridge
Bookmark and Share
A new bridge used by those who like to go walking, rise mountain bikes and don horse riding helmets to cross a river in the Yorkshire Dales on a long-distance trail has scooped a second design award.

Far Moor Bridge on the Pennine Bridleway - which crosses the River Ribble near Selside - picked up a special judges award at the British Construction Industry (BCI) 2011.

This happened despite it failing to pick up the gong in the category it had originally been shortlisted for.

Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority Pennine Bridleway project officer Peter Lambert said it was "a bit of a shock" to get the unheralded prize.

The 53-metre span bridge picked up the highly commended in the "structural" category of the Wood Awards last month.

Next year will see the formal opening of the Pennine Bridleway, which will stretch 200 miles from Middleton Top in Derbyshire to Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria.

It will pass through the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales national parks along the way.ADNFCR-2803-ID-800761574-ADNFCR
