Bridge Strengthening on an A69 Trunk Road

Bridge Strengthening on an A69 Trunk Road

As part of ongoing maintainance on the A69 trunk road, it was discovered that an abutment wall on the Haltwhistle Viaduct was in need of strengthening.

Working within strict traffic management guidelines, this was achieved by excavating adjacent to the wall and casting a heavily reinforced concrete slab tied in to the abutment.
