2010-11-23 Harsco on top form for A46 bridges
Leading Access and Formwork supplier Harsco Infrastructure is working with concrete Sub Contractor Midland Reinforced Concrete Ltd on the construction of six new bridges on the Balfour Beatty A46 Newark to Widmerpool Road Improvement project in Nottinghamshire.
Harsco’s Multiform Parapet system was designed and supplied for 3 of the 6 bridges, Saxondale North, Saxondale South & Stragglethorpe. Whilst using the Parapet system for the first time, Tony Nicholls (MD of Midland Reinforced Concrete Ltd) commented, ‘The system is very safe and quick to use, we built the pre-assembled brackets into standard size units and lifted them into position with the crane, thus drastically reducing the need for any work at height. When the parapets have been poured they are crane lifted down and dismantled in a designated area at ground level.’
In addition to these six bridges, Harsco is supplying its Design Service and systems for the construction of an additional 16 structures on the A46 scheme. The remaining bridges are being built by concrete contractors David Ashley Construction Ltd, and JOS Structures Ltd.
