WORKS ON NEW £1.9 MILLION POUND ROAD BRIDGE OVER THE A38

27 February 2015

We recently completed edge protection and access works to the new road bridge over the A38 near Rattery for Main Contractor Balfour Beatty working for the Highway Agency.

 

The old bridge was demolished after it was discovered to be suffering from “concrete cancer” which would eventually lead to it becoming unsafe.

It was decided that the edge protection would be erected to the new bridge sections over the carriageway.

Access was then provided to each end using two Haki stair systems.

All works were completed during overnight road closures at the weekend.

 

An interesting short film of the demolition of the old bridge can be found:
