Full design, check and build package including foundations, access, paths, fencing and gates. Safe removal of five bridges and two tiny pipe culverts along with approximately 130m of 1m wide concrete causeway up to 100mm thick. Planning Permission and EA consent was sought and Topological Survey and Ground Investigations carried out. The site was near water and in close proximity to overhead power lines. A temporary aluminium roadway was laid on either side of the site. We installed 3nr replacement bridges, reinstated existing causeway and created a new widened causeway. The project involved careful management of stakeholders, Landowners, Parish Council, EA and British Horse Society. The works were carried out in a safe manner and with minimum inconvenience to residents, businesses and to vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
The structures were craned into position using a 300te grove. The bridges were uniform in finish. A 36m, an 18.7m and a 5m structure all constructed in steel and timber, with a hardwood finish. All steelwork was coated with HA Type II Alternative Paint System, FSC hardwood all fixings galvanised.
Environmental and ecology factors were carefully managed throughout the duration of these works, eg. the presence of otters, bats and newts had to be considered within our programme and dealt with in the proper way.
All criteria were met, on time and performed safely.
