Guildford Borough Council’s New Bridge Construction Project


WBD has advised Guildford Borough Council on the construction of a new bridge across the River Wey.

The bridge will improve access to the town centre for thousands of pedestrians, cyclists and visitors.

Representing an investment of over £5m, the construction of the Walnut Bridge forms part of long-term plans developed by the Council to improve links to and from Guildford and sits at the heart of the Council’s Town Centre Regeneration Strategy and Sustainable Movement Corridor initiatives.

WBD’s construction and engineering team, led by partner Simon Rowland (Picture) and solicitor Ryan Lavers, provided specialist construction advice to the Council.
