Barhale were awarded this design and construct project by Network
Rail, to replace the railway bridge along Yews Lane in Helsby, Cheshire.
This occupation bridge provides the only access route to Hope Farm.
Having failed its capacity assessment, there was a need for it to be
replaced due to the weight limits imposed. This stopped vehicles in
excess of 6 tonnes accessing the farm, creating problems with feed
and livestock movements.

The scope of work comprised demolition of the existing bridge,
design, fabrication and installation of the new structure. Design was
undertaken by our sub-consultants, Crouch Waterfall and Partners,
whilst all other key elements were delivered in-house, including
fabrication of the new steel deck at our fabrication workshop in
