After sustaining significant flood damage during the storms in December 2015, this bridge was closed to the public.
Works involved demolition and removal of the dilapidated suspension bridge which had been built in 1951 to replace the Dinckley ferry.
The bridge and structural report were examined by our in-house engineers and a safe demolition sequence was prescribed and submitted to our Client for approval by their engineers.
A bespoke fall protection system was designed by a specialist access company 3M. This was designed to be both effective and easy to use. When installed at construction phase our site team were provided with on-site training in its use. These works were carried out over a period of approximately 8 days, which was ahead of schedule.
