Shay Murtagh Precast were recently contracted to manufacture and deliver a number of precast concrete units for Beresford Road Bridge upgrade works being undertaken by BAM Nuttall. Beresford Road Bridge, situated in Cardiff City Centre was targeted for refurbishment as part of Network Rail’s Upgrade Plan to electrify the South Wales Mainline. This will result in more seats, faster, more reliable journeys for passengers and an economic boost for the area due to improved connectivity.
Tony Gee, bridge designer provided technical drawings and Shay Murtagh Precast manufactured the following units:
- 15 Box Beams (31-42 Tonnes)
- 4 Cill Beams (20-36 Tonnes)
- 18 Parapet Walls
- 20 Approach Parapet Walls
Delivery of the units took place between the 17th of September and the 16th of October and the project was completed efficiently, safely and to schedule. We would like to congratulate all the team at BAM and Network Rail on another successful project completion and look forward to our next collaboration.
