Shay Murtagh Precast were contracted by Morgan Sindall to manufacture and deliver a number of precast Bridge Beams units to Linlithgow in Scotland for the reconstruction of Park Farm Bridge. Park Farm Bridge is one of a series of bridges being rebuilt as part of the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), a Scottish Government funded investment worth £742m. EGIP is delivering a rolling programme of electrification across the central belt of Scotland to reduce journey times and increase capacity on routes by improving the infrastructure.
Shay Murtagh Precast manufactured a number of precast units, including
- 2 Cill Beams 5.35M in length, 12.5 Tonne each
- East & West Parapets 10.9M in length, 36.6 Tonne each
- 3 MY2 Beams 9.8M in Length, 4.53 Tonne each
Shay Murtagh Precast manufactured the units over a 3-week period and a trial assembly took place in the factory on the 28th January before our highly skilled logistics team transported the units to Linlithgow to schedule. The reconstructed bridge re-opened to the public on the 15th April 2016. We congratulate the team at Morgan Sindall on another successful project completion and look forward to our next project together.
