Bridge Aesthetics
Enquiry
Addendum 2 Section 2.4.8.5 “Aesthetics” states that the bridge shall be designed for “Level 2-Medium” aesthetics classification according to the Aesthetic Guidelines, and also states the aesthetic requirements for the design of the pier with the statements... "The pier should be proportioned to stand out and create a crossing that is distinguishable and can be associated with the Bradford Bypass. It should be recognizable, and noticeably different in form than most typical underpass bridges". Additionally, in document 11 of Table C-1, the SDR under Summary and Recommendations on page 9 provides details for the shapes of the piers for the steel box girder option detailing 5 individual pier shafts 1.2m wide x 3.3m long with no pier cap. As this is a DB Minor project, it is expected that the bridge aesthetic requirements are already finalized in the preliminary design and incorporated in the GA drawing/SDR provided. Would the Ministry please clarify the role of the DB Team in the aesthetic design of the Bradford Bypass County Road 4 Underpass structure as it is expected that the aesthetic details for this project would be incorporated on the other structures for the Bradford Bypass.
