Contractor Norwest Holst last week lifted in 100 precast beams needed to create a new bridge deck for the northern carriageway of the A106 in east London.

The bridge, built in 1963, is a key access point to London's proposed Olympic Park. But 40 years of chloride attack has severely weakened the 50m long, five span bridge and it had become uneconomic to repair. The contractor is now 12 months into a £2M, 18-month project to replace the deck and piers. The river foundations and abutment supports are being re-used. Client is the London Borough of Hackney, with funding from Transport for London.

Project manager is Hyder, and Mouchel Parkman is the contractor's designer.
