Kingsgate Bridge is a striking, modern reinforced concrete construction footbridge across the River Wear, in Durham, England. It is a Grade I listed building. It was personally designed in 1963 by Sir Ove Arup, connecting Bow Lane on the historic peninsula in the centre of Durham to Dunelm House on New Elvet (to which building Arup’s studio also contributed), and opened in 1966. Kingsgate Bridge is thought to have been one of Arup’s favourite designs of all, he having spent many hours working on every detail of the plans.
