Officials from Guinness World Records have confirmed that The Big Bridge Build, a bridge spanning almost 100 feet across Belfast’s Clarendon Dock, is the world’s largest Meccano structure.

The Big Bridge Build was a year-long project and is the brainchild of the Queen’s University Belfast’s School of Planning, Architecture and Civil Engineering. 

Academics and students created the bridge, with the help of local school children, as part of the university’s outreach programme to encourage more children to think about careers in STEM.

The Bridge was officially declared open by Meccano’s Meccanoid G15 KS buildable and programmable Robot.

The project was made possible with the help of Civil Engineering companies Aecom and McLaughlin & Harvey, and Spin Master Corp – Meccano’s Brand owners.
