demolition & reconstruction

Staged demolition of the ex-culvert and reconstruction of Smithy Bridge over the Rochdale Canal.

At Ben Healey, the works included the realignment of the road and construction of a major new bridge over the canal. Numerous service diversions and extensive PR was required at each location, as was dealing with canal flows, full carriageway construction, new parapets, training walls, etc.

At Smithy Bridge a temporary footbridge over the canal and around the works was required to maintain access to the area for pedestrians.
