This project involved the redesign and reconstruction of bridge abutments on the A1 trunk road from Newcastle-on-Tyne to Edinburgh at Denwick. As the road needed to be widened Mowlem construction was awarded the contract to carry out the work by Highways England. As there were time constraints on the project due to the volume of traffic using the road on a daily basis the design and working drawings were submitted to the Client in only two weeks.
The construction of the East abutment took place in just three weeks, demonstrating the fast turnaround of Geosystems. The Hexlok panels provided an aesthetic finish, an important consideration for the Client. The project was completed ahead of schedule to the Client’s satisfaction.
