Project Description

The new bridge deck was created as part of Coventry City Councils Friargate development of the City Centre.
EMJ designed and manufactured various panel lengths to the suit the skew of the beams ranging in lengths from 1987 mm to 3274 mm in lengths to suit the design requirements of the bridge. A large quantiy of panels were delivered to steel fabricators yard for off-site installation onto paired braced beams. This method benefits contractor and client alike as reduces crane time on site, improved speed of installation and safety on site. Intermediate panels can then be easily installed using off-site installed panels as a safe working platform.
