A bridge on the Derby Ring Road is the first in the UK to be fitted with the Wabo modular expansion joint system supplied by HSC UK. The 16m, 10t joint arrived on site fully assembled and was installed by HSC-approved specialist contractor Ram Services on behalf of main contractor Birse Construction. HSC claims the Wabo joint is waterproof and maintenance free, and can accommodate structural movements from 80mm to 2000mm.
