After months of planning and preparation, a 5,000-tonne bridge, one of the largest bridge lifts in Europe, was transported to its new home on the West Coast Mainline.
The ground was prepared by lifting and clearing existing track using remote control panel lifters and removal of 36,000-tonnes of earth to make space for the new structure.
Self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs) were used to move the concrete structure into its final location (the bridge was constructed in a green field next to the railway line). Once the bridge was installed, the track was rebuilt and adjustments were made to the overhead wires ahead of the line reopening.
The bridge and new road forms part of the £127.2 million Ravenscraig Access Infrastructure project.
This event will look at the planning and preparation required to undertake this major project.

Join the ICE Early Careers Network East Midlands branch for their monthly committee meetings, everyone is welcome to attend.
ICE Bristol City Club and CIWEM are hosting an introductory session to nature-based solutions, diving into the benefits they offer and providing real life examples from the South West.
The first in this series of three events will examine working at height. It is targeted towards the ECNet. Introduced by the Health & Safety Executive for Northern Ireland as the regulator, it will provide information on working at height from the perspective of three CDM duty holders; the client, the designer and the principal contractor.
