Queens Park Suspension Bridge

Queens Park Suspension Bridge

The Queens Park Suspension Bridge is a footbridge crossing the river Dee in Chester at the Groves.

The current Queens Park Suspension Bridge was designed by Mr Charles Greenwood, City Engineer and Surveyor. The bridge was opened by the Mayor of Chester, Councillor S. R. Wall, on 18 April 1923.

Structures report

Following routine inspections of the 100-year-old bridge in spring 2023 a structures report was commissioned that has revealed issues with the metal work requiring immediate attention.

A full structural assessment is now underway.

Once we have the results of the full inspection, Structural Engineers will need to review this, and develop a design to address the issues identified.

Temporary scaffold

Temporary scaffold has been installed to provide additional strengthening to ensure the bridge can remain open.
