Grade II Listed Bridge Restoration, Sheffield

The restoration of a Grade 2 listed bridge in the heart of the Sheffield proved to bring fresh challenges to Wright Engineering’s special projects team.
The work carried out in the steel city was awarded to Wright engineering by Henry Boot Ltd with Amey Construction responsible for the overall design.

The first task was the removal of the original pavements only to reveal decades of corrosion to the original riveted construction. Working closely with the client, a cost effective repair method was proposed and approved which included the replacement of channel section, numerous original hand driven rivets along with welded repairs to corroded structural members.

The aesthetics of the project was strictly controlled with regular inspections by English Heritage to ensure all work carried out was sympathetic to the original design. New iron trims were locally cast and fitted to the arches of the bridge in order to replace frost damaged originals.
All new footway plates were manufactured off site and painted to a high specification in order to ensure the restored bridge would be good for many more decades of use.

With a fresh coat of paint in the original colours the bridge began to take on a new lease of life and helping to enhance the redevelopment of one of Sheffield’s traditionally industrial areas.SheffieldBridgeBridge3Bridge4Bridge2
