The RIBA Competitions Office has launched an international open competition to design a new cycle and bridleway bridge crossing the River Douglas in Preston.
The design competition is being promoted by Remade in Lancashire, Lancashire County Council, and the North West Development Agency.
Entries are invited from architect-led, multi-disciplinary design teams, which will be judged anonymously at the First Stage. Up to six entrants will then be invited to develop their design proposals and present them to a jury panel at interview. Each Stage Two competitor will receive an honorarium of £1,500. In addition the following prize money will be awarded: 1st: £8,000; 2nd: £4,000; 3rd: £2,000 or the prize money may be allocated in an alternative way if the jury panel see fit.
