What We Did

The main span at a length 36m was assembled in a single section, with walkways and handrails fixed in position.

The entire structure was then transported to site by a specialist heavy haulage contractor.

The support trestles were initially erected followed by the main span in a single lift.

This approach allowed the entire erection to be completed in a single shift.
