VIDEO: Watch huge steel girders arrive for Worcester's Carrington Bridge dualling

October 13 2020

Worcester resident Edward Murphy captured this video of two huge steel girders arriving in the city as part of the Carrington Bridge dualling.

 
They were given a police police escort through Worcester.
The giant steel structures arrived as work to double the width of the Carrington Bridge over the River Severn takes a big step forward over the coming weeks.
The bridge widening works are part of the fourth and final phase of Worcestershire County Council’s scheme to fully dual the A4440 Southern Link Road (SLR) from Junction 7 of the M5 to the Powick Roundabout.
The steel frame that will form the bridge span will be constructed in segments onsite and each segment lifted into place by one of the biggest cranes in the UK over the next few weeks.
The steel being used has been fabricated in Darlington from an innovative type of steel, new to the UK but widely used globally, with improved weather resistance.
