Bridge works and more finished with minimum fuss

Here’s some photos of the recently completed work we’ve done on Kennington Railway Bridge.

The bridge carries the A423 Southern by-pass over the railway line between Hinksey Hill Interchange and Kennington Roundabout.

Our team last week finished work on replacing light columns, waterproofing to the north and south side verges, resurfacing the verges, rebuilding a wall to encapsulate the water main with a concrete cover slab and replaced a concrete safety barrier.

Anyone who drove through the area during the work may have experienced a little inconvenience due to the traffic management.

However what won’t have been apparent is the inconvenience we prevented by working closely with Thames Water who replaced their water main, and the Environment Agency who carried out essential bore hole investigations for their Flood Alleviation Scheme. All this was done under the same traffic management saving time, money and the sanity of drivers!

The third and final phase of the project will take place during Summer 2019, and will involve replacement of the deteriorated bridge bearings and numerous concrete repairs to the supports below the bridge.
