About the project
Pansport Bridge is a suspended deck two-span twin arch bridge, and is the largest of three bridges forming part of the £86million Flood Alleviation Scheme in Elgin, Scotland. The total length of the bridge is circa. 75m.
The steelwork elements of the structure were fabricated at CBUK’s Darlington facility. The arches are constructed as plate fabricated trapezoidal boxes; providing support to the main carriageway deck via cable hangers. Large cantilever components are connected to the deck at either side of the arches, and provide segregated pedestrian walkways to which the stainless steel handrailing is assembled. In order to minimise the number of lifts required on-site, the walkways were fabricated and transported as modules of 4.8m in width, and lengths ranging from 15m to 21m.
