Contractor Balfour Beatty last week lifted into place three 20t prefabricated sections of a cycle bridge over the A689 near Sedgefield in County Durham.

The bridge will form part of the national cycle network which stretches from Inverness to Dover. It is now ready for use, but remains closed to the public because of the foot and mouth epidemic. Work was carried out during a weekend closure of the dual carriageway at the end of April. The bridge was designed by Nusteel Structures, and the foundations by Halcrow.
