World’s Greatest Bridges – 20 May 2021 – 20/5/2021 – Thursday – SBS
Opened in 1966, the 1.6 kilometre-long Severn Bridge was the first road bridge to connect England and south Wales by spanning the Severn estuary, one of the most dangerous waterways in Britain. An ill-fated 19thcentury railway crossing had previously existed over the Severn, but it was demolished in the late 1960s after a number of fatal accidents. Rob Bell explores the failures in engineering that led to the downfall of that earlier bridge and reveals how designer Dr Bill Brown took a radically new approach by developing an aerodynamic box girder deck that completely revolutionised bridge design.
