About This Project

Awarded the package by Waterways Ireland for the strengthening repairs to two separate stone arched bridges on the River Barrow.

The scope of works included;

  • installation of concrete aprons to the abutments and wing-walls.
  • dismantling, cleaning and reconstruction of stone parapet walls, abutments, wing-walls and cut-waters.
  • repointing to the arch barrels and abutments.

A temporary arch support was used throughout the works. All repointing was completed using traditional building techniques and methods with the lime-mortar mix NHL 3.5.
