Flintshire Bridge approach
Total length is 954m and deck width 28m for the dual carriageway and paths. The 118m high A shaped tower supports the 294m main span (an in-situ cast concrete deck) by way of 38 pairs of stay cables. There are access viaducts on either side – 390m on the east and 270m on the west. On the main span the 194m longer span counterbalances the 100m end span.
The proposal and design, following a selection competition, was completed by Gifford Graham and Partners (part of Ramboll Group). Architect was Percy Thomas Partnership.
