Bridge across the Medway River, Maidstone, Kent, UK

Completed in 2001

The structure, with two spans of 37.5+49.5 m, is the first stress-ribbon structure with cranked alignment. The stress ribbon is assembled from precast segments and a composite slab with a total depth of 0.29 m. The intermediate pier also serves as stairs.
