Bridge Deck pour Cemetery Road Bridge - 2nd April

On Wednesday 2nd April we will be pouring concrete to the bridge deck forming the new Cemtery Road Bridge. To protect road users from the possibility of grout drips during the pour operation we will be installing two-way traffic lights on the A465 after peak traffic flows.  As a result we will not commence the pour until approximately 4pm resulting in works continuing on into the evening.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause to both road users and local residents, but will endeavour to reduce disturbance to a minimum.

Carno Underpass Takes Shape

The concrete arch sections which form the culvert beneath Carno Embankment have now being lifted into place. Each of the 150 units weighs approx 28tonnes and when placed will create a 9m high, 18m wide by 150m long culvert.
