About the project
The Queen Elizabeth II Bridge is a 137m high, 812m long cable-stayed road bridge carrying the four southbound lanes of the M25 London Orbital Motorway across the River Thames in South East England. This was a private investment design and construction project to construct and operate the bridge in conjunction with the existing tunnels; with the company already recouping its expenditure from toll charges alone. The construction of this structure was carried out by the Cementation Cleveland Dartford Consortium comprising Cleveland Bridge and Kvaerner Construction.
Upon completion, the structure was Europe’s largest cable-supported bridge, with a total span of 450m.
