This month’s projects – September 2013

This month has been all about gantries at Nusteel, with our erection teams installing quite a few new portal gantries and associated steelwork. The majority of these structures were on the Northern and Southern sections of the M25 LUS for Skanska Balfour Beatty.

Together with the ‘new build’ gantries, we have also been busy working on refurbishing the insitu gantries on the Birmingham Box MM3 project.  These operations involved the installation of retro-fit sign support steel and extensive cable tray works necessary to bring the existing structures up to date with the latest motorway information systems.

Shown above is a bespoke designed cantilever gantry that we manufactured and installed this month for Costain on the M5 Junction 21.  The ADS signs were fitted at our facilities and the complete structure delivered to site negating the need for sign fitting at height during a separate road closure.
