World’s Longest LEGO Bridge
A world-record bridge comprised of over 200,000 individual LEGO® bricks and weighing three quarters of a tonne has arrived in Glasgow’s St. Enoch Centre in time for the summer!
About World’s Longest LEGO Bridge
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The bridge, which holds the Guinness World Record for the longest LEGO® brick bridge, has been brought to the city by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) to mark the Institution’s bicentenary and Scotland’s Year of Young People.
People will be able to visit the impressive structure from Saturday 23rd June when it officially launches in St. Enoch Centre to coincide with International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) and ICE’s Explore Engineering weekend.
To celebrate its arrival and throughout its stay, St. Enoch and ICE will host a number of activities, the first of which starts on Saturday 23rd June and will feature interactive sessions from 11am-4pm. Shoppers will also have the chance to meet the invisible superheroes responsible for building the bridge in Glasgow.
The giant bridge, which stands at a whopping 3m tall and spans 31m - almost the length of three double-decker buses - has been re-built within the shopping centre’s mall area by a team of specialist civil engineers who worked tirelessly throughout the night. Designed by ICE Fellow, Dr. Robin Sham CBE, the bridge was first assembled in London in 2014 and has since been displayed in Liverpool and most recently, Hong Kong, before arriving in Scotland.
The bridge will be on display during centre hours from 23 June right through until the 28 October, as part of St. Enoch Centre’s busy summer calendar.
