In the Design and Construction Category British Waterways’ Dutton Upper Horse Bridge was commended, with the A11 Bow Riverside Footbridge and Walkway runner-up.

Roger Hanbury, Chief Executive of The Waterways Trust, said: “This is the tenth year of the Waterway Renaissance Awards and it is truly inspiring to see that, even in these very challenging economic times, people and organisations are continuing to work together to realise the benefits of our canals and rivers for communities across the UK.”
