A huge bridge beam lifting operation has been completed on the £96M Lincoln Eastern Bypass.
Four 41m long, 108t bridge beams for the new Greetwell bridge were lifted into place during a twelve-hour closure of the Market Rasen to Lincoln rail line, which will run below the bridge.
The Council’s executive member for highways and transport Cllr Richard Davies said: “This is a huge milestone in the construction of the new bridge in Greetwell. Not only does it show we’re making significant progress in getting the new crossing completed, but it shows that we’re making big strides with the bypass, overall.
“Now that the beams are in place, Galliford Try will start building the bridge deck over the next eleven weeks, with a view to the whole bridge being complete by the end of October.”
