In a highly unusual operation, contractor Amec has used a new steel bridge structure as a gantry in the £28M removal and replacement of Doncaster's old North Bridge, completed last weekend. North Bridge carries a major road over the East Coast Main Line and Doncaster Canal. To minimise the amount of craneage, Amec cut off the existing bridge's parapets and used it to launch two new 105m long steel trusses.
