Cleveland Bridge highlights expertise and experience at major national infrastructure event

13th November 2017

Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd has taken part in a major national exhibition to showcase its outstanding infrastructure capabilities with a focus on the depth and breadth of projects it has worked on recently including examples such as the Queensferry Crossing and A1 upgrades.

Highways UK, held at NEC Birmingham from 8-9 November, is a major event bringing together those responsible for the planning, designing, building, maintaining, operating and future-proofing of the UK’s road network.

The event is positioned to attract strategic planning and thought leadership at the leading edge of UK road infrastructure development, especially at the intersection of asset management and intelligent mobility (intelligent infrastructure).

Cleveland Bridge is at the forefront of innovation in its sector and has been part of a series of significant highway projects, including Britain’s newest road bridge, the Queensferry Crossing connecting Edinburgh to Fife, which was officially opened by the Queen in early September.

The company has also, in recent months, been part of the major upgrade to the A1 in North Yorkshire with the fabrication and installation of eight bridges. Using British-made steel, the 20-month project was completed with the installation of the 53 metre Fort Overbridge. The work was carried out on behalf of Highways England’s principal contractor on the A1 scheme, a Carillion and Morgan Sindall joint venture.

Fin Farrelly, Marketing Manager at Cleveland Bridge, said: “We were delighted to have such a key presence at Highways UK, an increasingly prestigious event in the transport infrastructure calendar. “With growing recognition of the relationship between transport infrastructure investment and economic growth, the highways sector is enjoying increasing levels of investment, and we are proud to be part of that success.”
