This month’s projects – April 2016



During April, we have been busy on the M5 Smart Motorway project installing the first of many MS4 cantilever gantries.

This was in addition to a number of different gantry types being installed on the M60 Smart Motorway scheme and the M25 J30 improvement project.


April also saw the installation works for the Chiltern Gardens footbridge completed.  With a total span of 62 metres and a clear width of 3 metres, the bridge provides excellent access for both pedestrians and cyclists in the vicinity of the Metro Centre.  The overall weight of the structure is 46t and is situated over the A1 in Gateshead (please see the photographs below).
