We were appointed by Nottingham City Council, in conjunction with British Waterways, to undertake the Castle Marina Footbridge replacement works.

Located on the Beeston – Nottingham Canal, the existing footbridge was very narrow and the approach ramps steep; access was limited for cyclists and disabled users.

Replacement of the footbridge was required to ensure a safe route could be established for all users.

The existing steel and concrete bridge, including abutments and approach ramps, was demolished.

Piled foundations, pile caps, bank seats and new approach embankments were created. A pre-fabricated, painted steel truss superstructure was installed in the newly formed foundations.

Landscaping works, paving, planting and resurfacing was undertaken to complete the scheme.

Working space and access around site was limited due to headroom restrictions, therefore strict traffic management plans were in place to ensure safe pedestrian access.

The poor access also required restrictions of material deliveries and plant movements to ensure a safe working environment throughout scheme delivery.
