Some Other Bridges

28 Jul 2016

Some people have been shocked that the Garden Bridge Trust claim to have spent £37m of our money purely on a planning application, pre-contract work and some PR. A regular comparison is the Millennium Bridge over the Thames which cost £22m to build.

So here is a quick look at some other bridges to see what has been built for less than the £175m Garden Bridge (and one which is more expensive, but a truly remarkable feat, unlike the Lumlywick trite).

All prices are adjusted for inflation to today’s value.

 

The Langkawi Sky Bridge, Malaysia
£950,000
 

 

Sky Bridge, Sochi, Russia
£1.5m
 

 

Green Bridge, London
£9.2m
 

 

Peace Bridge, Calgary, Canada
£11m
 

 

Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Newcastle/Gateshead, England
£34m

 

The Millenium Bridge, London, England
£34m

 

Orwell Bridge, Ipswich, England
£83m
 

 
Siduhe River Bridge, China
£84m
