AECOM carried out the detailed design of Strabane Footbridge is a new 100m span cable stayed, steel/concrete composite deck, supported by an inclined arch pylon, which carries pedestrians and cyclist over the River Mourne in the heart of Strabane Town Centre.

Lagan Weir Footbridge is 120m-long and 8m wide, comprising of five continuous spans of approximately 25m. Rolled steel hollow sections were specified for their appearance and durability and the location of the bridge required a lightweight, easily constructed structure.
