The project required a new bridge and access road to connect a new housing development (417 homes) to the local road network. The site covered 14 hectares and had previously been occupied by a brickworks.

The scheme involved:

  • Construction of a new bridge made up of longitudinal steel plate girders with a concrete deck slab and a span of 30.5m. The bridge forms a 6.1m wide carriageway estate road with a pedestrian footpath on each side.
  • Installation of reinforced concrete bank seats. The bank seats were taken down to rock level located between 2.5m – 4.5m below ground level to provide adequate foundation for the bridge.
  • Construction of a 48m precast concrete culvert (2.4m x 2.1m) to act as surface water attenuation.
  • New foul chambers to receive an incoming 180mm rising main before the construction of 2 new connections into the existing 525mm diameter pre-cast concrete pipework.
  • Completion of Section 278 works from Manchester Road which included new bollards, street lighting and footpath works.
  • Widening of the existing road with the replacement of a new bus stop.
