Project Details

As part of a £220 million Highways Agency ECI contract, Balfour Beatty and design partner Scott Wilson (URS) chose to take full advantage of the benefits of precast concrete construction in all of the underbridges on the 28km improvement of the A46 between Newark and Widmerpool. 87 prestressed bridge beams in total measuring nearly 1.7km form the heart of the four underbridge structures including the busy A46/A52 Saxondale interchange.
