A12 Wellington Bridge Steel Beam and Concrete Repairs
Part of our ongoing programme of work to maintain England's strategic road network
What is happening?
We will be carrying out repair work on the A12 Wellington Bridge.
When and where is this happening?
Work is scheduled to commence in Summer 2013 and is expected to take 3 months to complete. The section of carriageway affected is on the A12 at Hatfield Peverel, Essex, between junction 20A and junction 20B.
Why is this happening and what will it cost?
Wellington Bridge has been hit on two separate occasions by overheight vehicles in the last 3 years. The works are necessary to return the bridge back to its original condition and allow for the current restrictions to be removed.
The scheme is expected to cost £1.8 million.
How will the scheme be carried out?
The repair works will involve straightening the deformed steel beams, replacing a damaged section of beam and recasting the damaged concrete deck.
What are the benefits?
The works will maintain the safety of the structure to current highway standards and will allow traffic to reuse the eastbound lane of the overbridge.
