July 24 - Collett & Sons recently delivered a 160-tonne footbridge to South Wales intended for the A465 Heads of the Valley Improvement Project.
The bridge was manufactured by specialist steelwork fabricators Britons and measured 54 m in length. It required a six-axle double bogie combination including a power boost to ensure satisfactory manoeuvrability onsite.
The Collett team loaded the consignment for the short movement onsite to the bridge's final positioning. The cargo was safely placed alongside its final location where a mobile crane was ready to unload the bridge and lift it to its final position.
The installation of the footbridge will provide a safer cycling crossing over the new dual carriageway.
