Contractors closed a section of the A1 in North and West Yorkshire at the weekend to enable the 513t central span of a new overbridge to be positioned above the carriageway.

The newly positioned span was assembled just east of the carriageway. Its removal has made way for piling of the foundations for the eastern approach span.The new bridge forms part of the £245M privately financed upgrade of the A1 to motorway standard which is being carried out by RMG Construction, a joint venture between Amec, Alfred McAlpine, Dragados and consultant KBR.
