Project Description

This contract involved extensive realignment, strengthining of existing multi-span masonry river arch bridge plus extensive realignment and construction of approach roads, including traffic roundabouts and predestrian islands, light traffic signalling and landscaping. The strengthening and widening of the 18th Century masonry arch bridge and the construction of a new reinforced concrete 50 metre 3 span bridge downstream of the arch bridge. This enabled a one way traffic system to operate and relieve the traffic congestion in the town.

Identical stone was used in the arch extensions as in the original bridge, and the new bridge had an arched profile to sympathise with the earlier bridge.
