Old Tram Road Bridge

Preston’s Living Bridge. A 21st century engineered timber bridge, stronger and tougher than its historic predecessors as it draws it strength from curves and multi-joints. It harnesses energy through water turbines, give the strong current in the River Ribble, which provides excess electricity to power Avenham Park and Old Tram Way lighting. Making it not only safer in the evening, but hugely attractive and seeks to become an ‘evening walk’ sensation! Elliptical viewing ports allow visitors / commuters to see the river and columns below them!
