Clifton Bridge, Emergency Call Out, Amey

Updated: Feb 23, 2021

When emergency work was required to repair Clifton Bridge on the A52 in Nottingham, Highway Care were ready to take on the challenge to help get traffic moving again.

Project background

The A52 on the Clifton Bridge was closed immediately, due to corroded steel work and damaged concrete being discovered on the underside of the bridge. Traffic quickly built up in and around the busy Nottingham city centre so an urgent solution was required to allow one lane to reopen while repair work could take place.

Amey, the M&R contractor were first on the scene to investigate, got in touch with Highway Care. Their requirement was for emergency barrier to be installed with a quick turnaround, so that one lane could be reopened and allow traffic to move through a congested Nottingham city centre.

Scope of project

Andy Farrar, Business Development Manager for the Road Barriers division, organised for operatives from the Grantham depot to do a quick site visit.

The installation of BG800 temporary barrier commenced on Tuesday 11th February. A total of 612 metres of BG800 was installed, with 22 metres Quick Moveable Barrier (QMB) to block the access road.

Ian Moorcroft, Regional Operations Manager, Amey said:
