Project Brief:

This contract required the replacement of the sub-structure of an existing steel I beam bridge. The piers and abutments were increased in size, with piling undertaken whilst the bridge remained open to the public. New end spans were fabricated and installed and significant repair works was also undertaken on the existing steel beams, deck and handrails. To complete this contract the pavement approaches were raised and chip sealed.
