Made-to-measure footbridge in Nottingham
1 November 2018 - Projects update and handover - United Kingdom
On behalf of the city of Nottingham, Eurovia Contracting North has installed a 50 m-long steel footbridge over the Midland Main Line – a major rail link between London and Sheffield.
The bridge forms part of a new pedestrian walkway between the Boots campus, in Nottingham’s industrial zone, which also includes a science park, and University Boulevard.
It will also improve access to the university and the Queen’s Medical Centre. While the bridge itself was lifted into place above the tracks in late August, with the help of three cranes weighing 1,000, 150 and 55 tonnes respectively, the 80 m-long ramps leading up to it still had to be installed in October, one on either side.
