Bridge around the corner

AJ Engineering has secured work literally around the corner from one of its depots.

Led by Project Manager Kevin Smith, the project involves the fabrication and installation of a new road bridge over the Mosset Burn near to the depot of moving and storage firm White & Company.

Working for Livingston-based Cleantech Civils on behalf of Scottish Water, AJE is providing two main girder beams and 24 cross beam sections for the bridge which will be 16 metres long and 8 metres wide.

The new bridge is being created to give Scottish Water a new access point to their waste water treatment works site.

Kevin said: “All materials are ordered. The fabrication work will take place in the Waterford depot which is literally a five-minute walk to the site itself. However, the project is slightly more complex due to the size of the bridge and the location.”

Kevin added: “Once fabricated, the parts will be sent away to be painted and returned to Waterford.  From there the bridge will be shipped to its final location just a quarter of a mile away. The bridge will then be lifted into place over the burn. Due to the size of the bridge, which will come in at about 45 tonnes in total we have had to work out logistics with the client and nearby businesses on how best to get it in place.”
