A 30-metre-long bridge of galvanized steel and wooden decking over the historic Shubenacadie Canal is a key link to providing direct pedestrian access to the Dartmouth Harbourwalk Trail.
A joint project between Waterfront Development and Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), the Telford bridge contains historic and aesthetic elements of the famous Buildwas Bridge in England, designed by Thomas Telford in 1796. He was a Scottish civil engineer famous for his roads, canals and more than 1,000 bridges, and his influence can be seen in the design of the bridge over Shubenacadie Canal.
The cost for the bridge phase, including the approaches, was approximately $360,000.
