This major project involved laying a culvert and overlying access road on one of the busiest roads connecting England and Scotland.
In March 2014 we installed a new bridge over the Liddel Water at Newcastleton for the Rock UK adventure centre.
The work involved creating a cycle trail, formation of two concrete abutments on each side of the river and placing the bridge over. The bridge arrived by road, in smaller sections, then was assembled on the ground and lifted into place.
See the whole bridge installation on our time lapse video of the event;
The river Caldew had eroded bridge abutments at the Sheepmount in Carlisle. R H Irving Construction Ltd were tasked with repairing the structures, commencing with installation of gabion baskets and piling.
The area was then landscaped with anchored reeds to provide eco-friendly protection against further erosion.
