On the night of Saturday 3rd December Bethell set up a huge 500 tonne capacity crane on St Mary’s Way, Stockport.
Its task was to lift and place three new bridge beams for our project at Captains Bridge. The project is part of our £2.0m contract to widen the St Mary’s Way / New Bridge Lane junction.
The road was closed from 6 pm on the Saturday and re-opened on schedule at 12 noon on Sunday. The three 36m long beams, weighing 30 tonne each, were offloaded from their transport and positioned carefully on their bearing sockets.
The project is on schedule for completion in June 17 following the diversion of the water, gas, sewage and telecom services.
When complete, the newly widened bridge will provide sufficient width to allow two lanes of traffic to travel in each direction and remove a notorious bottleneck.
