Whelmar Bridge


Design and build project for the installation of the footbridge undertaken as part of the “Connecting Skelmersdale” project serving the Concourse Shopping Centre at Skelmersdale, West Lancashire.

The bridge was installed to replace an ageing structure and incorporated an innovative cable stay and mast solution to span a fast food restaurant and overcome the need for supports adjacent to the carriageway.

The scheme also involved careful planning and nighttime working to maintain daytime access into the shopping centre.
