Beaver Bridges Ltd were awarded this Full Turnkey Package under contract NEC3 ECC Option A conditions. Full design, manufacture, installation and associated ground works of a 60m steel all steel footbridge, including 2nr intermediate support frames on new piled concrete foundations. Paint finish, resin coated aggregate non-slip deck with lighting to the handrails.
Removal of an existing dilapidated suspension bridge and its footings; and replace it with a new footbridge, linking the Island to the mainland. The access to this site was restricted and particularly tight. We had to strengthen existing road bridges and upgrade over 3km of approach roads in order to make it safe for the required 400te crane. The arrival and sequencing of 7 ballast waggons, had to be carefully managed to meet the rigging requirements of the crane. Manoeuvrability of vehicles and deliveries were also safely managed.
All criteria were met, on time and performed safely.
