MCFC are developing a world-leading training facility (City Football Academy, CFA) on 80 acres of land to the south east of the their home ground, the Etihad Stadium, which is being expanded.  Forming a physical and symbolic link between the City Football Academy, the Etihad Stadium and the wider Etihad Campus estate, the CFA Bridge increases connectivity and permeability of the sites for pedestrians.   Crossing a busy road junction, including Manchester’s inner relief road, the design consists of two perimeter fabricated box beams with a concrete deck supported on “V” columns.  The design and subsequent installation of the bridge presented many technical and financial challenges which Pierre Angulaire successfully managed on behalf of the client.
