With the A14 Project hitting new highs in terms of progress this month, Lynch began the huge task of delivering the first of 540 concrete slabs to site. These 22.5 tonne panels will form the impressive RGO viaduct. When completed the total crossing length of 747m will be carrying traffic over the flood plain and river.
The successful delivery of such an important phase of the project is something that Midlands transport manager, Karl Varley, has worked hard to ensure. As Karl explains, "The logistics of loading and transporting such large structures is something that has to be planned and executed without any margin for error".
The precast slabs are being used instead of an in-situ build to ensure a much higher quality finish, as well as providing a safer working process.
