Corrosion of reinforcement and more crucially degradation by frost affecting the concrete retaining and parapet walls led to a scheme of refurbishment awarded to Ram Services Limited by term contractor Ringway.
|Scheme:||A65 Long Preston Bridge|
|Problem:||Degradation of concrete retaining/parapet walls|
|Solution:||Concrete patch repairs and replacement of concrete coping|
|Client:||North Yorkshire County Council|
|Date:||November 2012 – April 2013|
The existing insitu concrete coping detail was considered to be beyond repair, and was cut from the wall completely using diamond sawing techniques, lifted clear and removed off site. An e specially cast, sectional coping was then constructed, hoisted into position, bedded in place, and secured with resin bonded steel dowels.
