Milestone reached at Wollaston Bridge

On the 16th March an important milestone was reached on our Wollaston Bridge contract for Taylor Wimpey at the Doulton Brook Housing Development.

With careful and meticulous planning we successfully took delivery of and installed the 2no edge beams weighing 29 Ton each and 13no standard beams weighing 20 Ton each that will form part of the deck. The beams were procured from Shay Murtagh in the West of Ireland and were transported from Ireland on 8 loads under a special movement order. Using a 350 ton crane from Dewsbury and Proud the 15 beams were successfully lifted into place in 6.5 hours.

Works are now progressing on the in-situ deck and wing-walls to achieve hand over to Taylor Wimpy in early June.
