Footbridge Restoration Works

About This Project

Awarded the package by Waterways Ireland for the strengthening repairs to a foot bridge crossing the River Barrow.

The scope of works included;

  • Dismantling the collapsed piers & abutments.
  • Constructing new reinforced concrete founds.
  • Reconstructing piers & abutments using existing stone & NHL 3.5 lime.
  • Replacement of timber boards to footbridge

Cofferdams were created using hessian filled sandbags to divert the flow of the river; allowing works to be completed on one side at a time.
