A three minute time lapse video released by Highways England shows 11 months’ work on the Merafield Bridge scheme at Plypton, Devon.
The video records the progress on the £6.4M bridge, including a demolition with 50 kg of explosive charges.
After the demolition 139t of metal and 2000t of rubble were removed from the site to be used on local sites. A further 3000t of recycled aggregate was used to create a ‘crash deck’ for the site.
South West Regional Director, Andrew Page-Dove said: ”This video really shows how much work went into planning and executing this significant bridge scheme and we are very proud of what we have been able to achieve for drivers and the local community.”
”The recycling record of the project is also impressive and it’s great to think that waste from the old Merafield Bridge will now being used in the construction of new buildings and structures all over Devon and Cornwall.”
