Norwich Northern Distributor Road project completes installation of final bridge beams

Upcoming Projects

Norfolk County Council and Balfour Beatty have successfully completed the final bridge beam lifts on the 20km Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NNDR) project, lifting 32 beams into place at Middle Road, Great Plumstead, with a 500 tonne crane in under two days.

This will be the second ‘green bridge’ on the route, with the hedgerow and panelling designed to create a dark corridor that will provide a safe crossing for bats on a known flight path.Ian Taylor, Project Manager for Norfolk County Council, said: “Since the beginning of the year we’ve seen main beam lifts completed on all eight bridges – including the sizable steel beams over the Norwich to Sheringham railway. All have gone without a hitch, which is a credit to the professionalism of Balfour Beatty. Completing the bridge beam lifts is a significant advance for the project.”

Chris Sedman, Balfour Beatty Norwich Northern Distributor Road Project Director, commented: “The installation of the final bridge beams on the Norwich Northern Distributor Road is a great success for the project and a testament to the team’s engineering capabilities. Over the coming months, we look forward to opening a number of bridges which will enable the local community to experience some of the many benefits the project will deliver including improved road access and reduced congestion.”
