I was disappointed to spot an error in the 20/27 August edition of your publication.
In the top right-hand corner of page 48, you describe the bridge under construction as 'a reinforced concrete bridge at Enfield, Middlesex'.
Despite using reinforced concrete for the outer parapets, the designer opted to use a steel/concrete composite design for the bridge deck.
Erection of the steel plate girders was recently completed by Fairfield- Mabey for Fitzpatrick Contractors. The 260t of steel girders were erected using a 1,000t mobile crane, positioned at one end of the bridge. The concrete slab will soon be poured by Fitzpatrick to complete the composite deck, completing construction of the access bridge to a private housing development in Enfield, north London.
