With 2016 being a leap year the shortest month, February, gained an extra day and this was put to good use by our erection teams! We installed another five portal gantries and four cantilever MS4’s on various motorway projects during the month. This was in addition to the two lift shafts at Godalming Station in Surrey and a single span footbridge, with an overall length of 63m, at Chiltern Gardens in Gateshead.
Meanwhile on the shop floor work was underway building the 52m Bow Warren span (shown above) for Blacksole Footbridge, Herne Bay in our home county of Kent. Now fully fabricated the span will be shot blasted and have its protective paint coating applied ready for installation next month.
