Contract Value:£0.5 Million
DG Cummins successfully tendered for this complex civil engineering project which tested our technical, managerial and engineering skills to the full. The Scheme arose from the Governments ‘Local Pinch Point Scheme’ to relieve localised congestion hotspots around the country. DGC’s scope of works included a temporary diversion of the existing Bradford Beck thereby allowing the installation of a twin line of 5m x 4m Concrete Culverts weighing approximately 25T each via the use of a 500T Mobile Crane.
The tight and congested site dictated the use of significant temporary works installations to facilitate both the culvert installation and also the associated reinforced concrete ‘tie-in’ structures, and retaining walls. To complete the project around 6,000m3 of imported engineered fill was placed to the completed works, allowing for the construction of the new road profile.
