ICE Bridge Engineering exhibition

ICE Bridge Engineering exhibition

Victorian engineers were the first to build bridges across wide, deep natural gorges and treacherous waters like the Menai Strait.

Today we build bridges across far greater distances and can see off even greater engineering challenges. Yet the principles remain the same.

ICE recently celebrated the very best of bridge building with a major exhibition spanning three centuries of bridge engineering achievements.

Its centrepiece was a 31m suspension bridge built entirely from LEGO and overseen by some of the world’s top bridge engineering talent. It was awarded the Guinness World of Records certificate for the longest ever span (16m) of a bridge made of LEGO.
