UK-based Collett & Sons has delivered nine pairs of girders from the manufacturing facility in Darlington to the M4 Monkey Island Bridge project in the UK.

The bridge sections measured between 15-36 m in length, and 26-63 tonnes in weight.

The heavy transport specialists loaded the cargo at the Cleveland Bridge manufacturing plant onto extendable flatbed trailers. The items were transported as multiple convoys a distance of 295 miles (474.8 km) to the delivery site.

This project is part of an upgrade to the M4 motorway which will eventually see a total of 11 bridges being replaced.
