Project Details

As part of the A46 Newark to Widmerpool improvement scheme, the Farndon Underpass provides an essential link beneath the busy Newark By-pass at the north of the scheme. The need to maintain high traffic volumes whilst constructing the improved junction led ECI contractor Balfour Beatty to again take advantage of the speed and flexibility of construction of the Opti-Cadre precast buried portal frame system. The sectional underpass, parapet beams and wingwalls were erected in two phases with only minimal effect on traffic.
