Maintenance Scheme

Part of our ongoing programme of work to maintain England's strategic road network

Cost:  £1.8 million

Managed by:   Area 6


Where was the project located?

The project was located on the A120 Wellington Bridge in Hatfield Peverel.

Why was the scheme needed?

Wellington Bridge was struck on two separate occasions by overheight vehicles.   The damage to the bridge was extensive and restrictions on traffic using the bridge had to be put in place as a safety measure.  

What work was carried out?

The repair works involved straightening of the deformed steel beams, replacing a damaged section of beam and recasting the damaged concrete deck.

How did this benefit road users?

The bridge has been returned to its original condition and meets current safety standards.   All restrictions on traffic using the bridge have been removed.
