Beams hoisted into place on new Cumbria road bridge
Last updated at 13:02, Sunday, 26 February 2012
The A596 road in Workington is back open after work to lift massive beams into place for the town's new Northside Bridge finished early.
Have your say
The shortest diversion route isnt always the most suitable. Have a little consideration for the people who live on the "unofficial" route and have to tolerate inconsiderate drivers who caused the jams.
Are you seriously complaining about a bit of traffic on the A66 as the beams were driven in??!!
Well done to the bridge team, get yourselves home to your families and enjoy whats left of your weekend!
alot of time was wasted due to red tape with planning and design, before work even got started. Then there was the 1 landowner wanting every penny they could for the land next to it - even though no extra land was really needed. They also had problems laying the foundations. Cut all this time wasted (except the foundation problem - not much can be done to save it's time), and the bridge could have been completed atleast 6 months ago.
