Pitch 200 winner Emma Watkins: new bridge at Waterloo station explained in simple terms
Skanska graduate engineer Emma Watkins who is working on the London Waterloo station upgrade used a bow and arrow to explain in 200 seconds the installation of a new pedestrian bridge.

“It’s amazing how much information you can convey in 200 seconds but I am very proud of my work at Waterloo Station so it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be," she says.

"The best part has been helping to bring the new and old terminals together with the rest of the station. I love seeing passengers walk across the bridge I helped to build and see my civil engineering work come to life."

Highways England's Kishore Ramdeen was given a commendation for his explanation of smart motorways that compared the transport network to the human body.

Other Pitch 200 pitches included thoughts on what the future engineer is likely to be, using water and pipes to demonstrate a fluid train network, and a look back at the pioneering women who built Waterloo Bridge.

The judging panel was led by Dr Jane Smallman, ICE Vice-President of UK Regions.

Emma will go forward to the national Pitch 200 final in November.
