About the project
Cleveland Bridge was chosen by Bam Nuttall to fabricate and trial assemble a critical rail bridge for their end clients, Lincolnshire County Council and Network Rail. They were chosen ahead of competition based upon a broad range of criteria including their approach to collaborative working, past performance and cutting edge product quality.
The project was part of the new Lincoln Eastern Bypass a 7.5km new road, designed to improve infrastructure, minimise congestion and encourage economic growth for the City. Cleveland Bridge were engaged early to ensure the optimum solution was developed. The scope of work comprised replacing an existing rail bridge with a new one, having a longer span to carry the rail line over the new dual carriageway. The new bypass was under construction simultaneously, so involved collaborating closely with all partners to ensure we met BAM Nuttall’s Beyond Zero objectives.
“May I pass on my thanks and appreciation for the works completed to date on CBUK's contracted works on the LEB project. I have been impressed by the thorough and professional behaviours of staff both during the offsite fabrication phase and the onsite assembly of the new bridge structure.”
