Collett delivers Halifax bridge beams

Each section was 48 metres long and weighed 56 tonnes

The four bridge sections were manufactured by Severfield in Bolton and they were transported by road 40 miles to Halifax by heavy transport specialist Collett.

With each measuring 48 metres long and weighing 56 tonnes, these were the largest pieces of steelwork to ever leave Severfield’s Bolton facility.

Over a two week period, each of the 56-tonne bridge sections was loaded on site at the Severfield factory on to two Faymonville eight-axle jeep dolly bogie trailers, the latest additions to Collett’s trailer fleet.  These dolly combinations have automatic steering, allowing the back axles to follow the tractor unit autonomously.  The trailers also have the option of overriding this feature to provide manual steering and rear steer capabilities – this then allows the rear bogey to steer independently of the tractor unit. This project was the first deployment for these trailers.

The steel will form the integral part of the A629 Salterhebble Bridge project in Halifax, under construction by John Sisk & Son under a £27m contract.

The beams arrived on site in mid-January and have since been lifted in to position.

The bridge project, funded by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, through the West Yorkshire-Plus Transport Fund, is expected to be completed later this year.

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
