The WAN Transport Award judges all recognised the elegance and ingenuity of the design and felt the architects had responded well to the challenges of the brief. John Martin, Associate Principal at AECOM said of The Bicycle Snake: “An elevated (literally and figuratively) response to a simple problem; adapted to local culture. Simple. Elegant. Joyous.”
Jennifer Marmon, Founding Partner of PAR added: "The finalists represented a diversity of excellence from around the world. In the end, the jury selected a winning project that adeptly resolved urban transit issues while advancing social mobility. The project invigorates an interstitial urban space and becomes a new icon for the city."
