Neville's Cross Bridge roadworks


Find out about the bridge maintenance works which took place during February and for April 2018

Why were the works necessary?

Neville's Cross Bridge carries the A167 over the north east main rail line and is used by thousands of vehicles every day. The bridge's expansion joints accommodate any movement, expansion or shrinkage caused by changes in temperature and vibration, and need to be replaced from time to time. The safety barriers protect the bridge and rail line from vehicular damage, and also need maintaining.  

What did we do?

In February we replaced the bridge expansion joints, which are essential to ensure the bridge remains safe. To minimise disruption these works took place during the half term school holiday when traffic is lighter. 

We returned during the Easter holidays in April  to carry out maintenance to the safety barriers on the bridge.
