DTAH Partner Mark Langridge spoke last week at the 2022 Footbridge conference in Madrid. Titled “Two Modern Crossings in Historic Canadian Places: Creating ‘Places for People’,” Mark’s talk focused on two recently completed bridges: Garrison Crossing in Toronto’s Fort York neighbourhood, and Flora Footbridge in Ottawa. Mark also jointly presented with civil engineer Juan Sobrino on CSA guidelines for pedestrian bridge design.

The conference brought together bridge design and construction professionals as well as members of the public from around the world to speak on the theme of ‘creating experience,’ covering topics such as: footbridges as an important part of a system; bringing life to existing bridges: experience on bridge transformations into footbridges or cyclist paths; and footbridges in underdeveloped areas.
