New Davy Down bridge is the first of its kind in Europe

19 December 2018
An innovative new bridge installed at Davy Down Riverside Park, South Ockendon on Friday is the first of its kind in Europe.
The new 16 metre long bridge was put in place across the Mardyke River on Friday. It is made of a plastic composite material, which meant that the bridge was delivered in one piece and lowered into place last Friday.
The entire operation took place in just one day, far less than the weeks it usually takes to build a new bridge. It is the first bridge made with this material to be fitted anywhere in Europe.
