Information - Construction was completed in 1859, and it is still in use today - a fitting testament to the superb 'Design & Build' capabilities of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Using the lenticular truss design meant that there was no inward or outward forces exerted on the pillars, as the top arches push the pillars, and the lower chain arches pull the pillars.
