      CMF undertook the design, fabrication and construction of the pedestrian bridge over 6 lanes of the A40 at Greenford in Middlesex.

      The structure is painted mild steel and spans over 6 lanes of one of the busiest sections of the A40.  At each side of the carriageway is a 3 tier access ramp and stair structure with balustrade and handrail, providing access over the bridge. The main bridge section is supported by circular hollow-section mild steel lattice beams.

      The simplicity of the design, combined with the structure's strength and functionality, ensures that the bridge will remain an important, amenable and aesthetically enduring access facility.
