Client: J Murphy & Sons
Discipline: Structural Engineering

The Nottingham Canal Underbridge scheme required replacement of a two-span deck and removal of adjacent redundant decks. The need to remove the ‘Up Newark’ bridge decks was driven by their life-expired condition, leading to poor track quality and constant heavy maintenance. The track was originally supported on long timber bearers which required frequent realignment for gauge clearance. An abnormal possession for the replacement of the bridges was planned for Christmas 2018 with design work commencing in the January.
