2015 The Gobbins cliff-face path, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Constructed on the cliff line, the Gobbins cliff-face path runs along the Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland, some 30 kilometres from Belfast. Initial sections were built in 1902, but the entire path closed in 1954. The walkway has now re-opened after comprehensive restoration work.
15 new steel and tubular frame bridges, such as the 5.4-ton Tubular Bridge, and 6 new galleries and a tunnel have been constructed, offering visitors unique views over the wild Irish Sea.
Calenberg Civalit single-pad sliding bearings absorb the relative movement of +/- 30 mm in the steel girders in a friction-free system.
At the same time, the torsion from bends in structural components is transferred with the loads then channelled centrally into the sub-structure.
