M55 Broughton Circle Bridge Joint Replacement
Part of our ongoing programme of work to maintain England's strategic road network
Where was the project located?
Works took place on Broughton Circle Bridge and the eastbound link to the M6.
Why was the scheme needed?
The bridge joint were needed as the bridge joints had become worn and were reaching the end on their working lives. The safety barriers were replaced as they were also reaching the end on their working lives.
What work was carried out?
The bridge joints on Broughton Circle Bridge on both the east and westbound carriageway of the M55 were replaced. The expansion joints were also replaced on the M55 eastbound link to the M6. The safety barriers on M6 junction 32 northbound link to the M55 westbound were replaced.
How did this benefit road users?
The scheme was carried out to prevent further deterioration to the bridge and maintain a high level of safety. The new joints will extend the life of the bridges and reduce the requirement for future maintenance.
