Dovehouse Lane


The structure in need of refurbishment exists alongside the original Dovehouse Lane Bridge built in 1876. As this new bridge carries the main weight of traffic, maintenance was required to refurbish and strengthen the structure. After investigative action was taken it was revealed the bridge needed a series of major works to extend the life of the road and reduce future maintenance.

The nature and the necessity of the work required traffic management to divert all traffic onto the old bridge, enabling all routes to remain fully operational throughout the 12 week contract. 

During this time VolkerLaser removed all existing surfacing from the road and footways; existing waterproofing membrane and redundant service ducting were also removed to prepare the structure for further work.
