Evening Lecture: Design and Construction of the Northern Spire Bridge Sunderland

A joint lecture arranged by Engineers Ireland and the RoI Branch of the IStructE

The Northern Spire is a landmark new bridge dominating Sunderland’s skyline, which opened in August 2018. It is central to a new strategic road linking the A19 to Sunderland city centre and Port of Sunderland, United Kingdom. The innovative project has raised the profile of civil engineering both in the UK and internationally. The 105m A-frame pylon was transported by sea and river to site, before being raised into position during a carefully orchestrated two-day operation. The 330m deck was built alongside and launched across the river. It has been commissioned and overseen by Sunderland City Council. The £117 million project was funded by the UK Government and Sunderland City Council. In May 2015, the Council awarded the main construction contract to FVB, an international joint venture set up by Farrans Construction and Victor Buyck Steel Construction and the Design Joint Venture of Roughan & O’Donovan Consulting Engineers and BuroHappold Engineering.
