Dew Construction jacked a 4,000t underline bridge into position last week as part of its contract for the final phase of the Skelton to Brotton bypass in Cleveland. The bridge carries the new bypass beneath Railtrack's single line and is a reinforced 20m clear span concrete box. Cantilevered monolithic wingwalls give the structure an overall width of 43m.

Construction took place on slide tracks at the side of the existing railway cutting and the bridge was jacked into place using four 750t jacks in a 115 hour possession. Dew Construction parent Dew Pitchmastic was missed out of the rankings in our recent Contractors File. For information, the company is 41st in the civils turnover list, 33rd in the overall turnover list, 34th for overall profit and 41st for UK civils staff employed.
