Challenge of Project
Construction of the new Killingworth Road Metro bridge is one of the largest engineering projects in the history of the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Metro. Moore Concrete worked with Story Contracting on the project to provide the new precast concrete substructure to the new bridge which replaced the Victorian era original structure.
The bridge substructure was designed as modular precast abutment units assembled, positioned and connected together in position. The superstructure, comprising steel beams and complex precast cill beams, was assembled off line and moved into position using a multi-wheeled lifting rig.
