A DARLINGTON bridge builder has fabricated another record-breaking pair of steel girders.

The 56-metre-long girders fabricated by Cleveland Bridge are destined for the East Midlands where they will form part of a new bridge spanning the A45 in Coventry.

Previously, Cleveland Bridge’s record for its longest girders was 50 metres, set in 2017 for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route project.

Cleveland Bridge has been contracted to supply, fabricate and erect the bridge, which features a double-span ladder deck and a striking mast.

With a 27,000 square metre fabrication hall within its 22-acre site, Cleveland Bridge has the capacity to deliver large-scale steel structures of this kind, which are produced by its long-standing highly skilled workforce and overseen by a team of technical managers with extensive structural engineering experience.

Chris Droogan, managing director of Cleveland Bridge UK, said: “The fabrication of these 56-metre bridge girders is testament to the skills of our workforce and our extensive production capabilities.

"It is always a proud moment when a project is loaded out for installation, but when it’s record-breaking it’s particularly satisfying."
