Cleveland Bridge wins Forth Replacement Crossing contract

Steel fabricator Cleveland Bridge has this week won a major steel supply contract for the new £790M Forth Replacement Crossing road bridge in Scotland.

Darlington-based Cleveland Bridge will be responsible for the fabrication, delivery and site assembly of the steelwork on the north and south approaches to the main crossing.

The firm beat off stiff competition to be selected by main contractor Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors.

“We have worked extremely hard to secure this contract against international competition and this contract will provide a solid foundation for our Darlington facility for the next 18 months, giving us the opportunity to recruit and build on our existing engineering, workshop and site resource,” said Cleveland Bridge general manager Andy Hall.

The new cable-stayed bridge will replace the existing Forth Road Bridge as the main vehicle crossing over the estuary and is due to open in 2016.
