This traversing arch structure comprising eleven box sections, spans between two masonry walls that act as abutments to withstand the lateral forces imposed by the arch form. Chords run through the centre of the box sections allowing for ease of installation and to counteract shear forces at the connections. The box design is effective in withstanding the compressive forces within the arch.
