Planing the existing surfacing to expose the concrete, inspect and carry out repairs where necessary, apply a new waterproofing system, then re-build the surfacing including tarmac to the existing road’s level. All during three consecutive night shifts.
Cleaning off, prepare and paint the exposed steel (parapets and beams) – involving a scaffolding and encapsulation system to contain the debris.
Strengthening three heavily damaged steel beams using an FRP system, including design, supply and install of the FRP components.
Carrying out concrete repair to the existing invert below the bridge.
Providing this scheme involved working near or in the river, Beaver Bridges offered an ingenious method to avoid the risks of water contamination and provide a safer space for the site workers. A water dam and pipes system were installed further upstream to temporarily divert the water course, thus obtaining a dry platform directly below the bridge.
Thanks to committed personnel and a reliable, versatile supply chain, Beaver Bridges were able to undertake this works package and deliver the refurbishment scheme on a quick turnaround, at a high standard of quality.
