This project involved the deck replacement of the existing Glenkindie Bridge in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
The bridge is a two-span 23m long bridge continuous through-girder bridge on masonry abutments and pier carrying the C67M road over the River Don in Aberdeenshire. The width of the bridge is 3.85 metres. The works consisted of the installation of temporary works, the construction of a crash deck containment system, removal of the existing deck, strengthening and refurbishment of the existing pier and abutments, alterations to the pier, abutments and wing walls to accept the new deck arrangement, construction of a new steel beam and reinforced concrete composite deck, waterproofing, fabrication and installation of parapets, tie-in to the existing road and landscaping works. A temporary bridge and associated access roads had been constructed to divert all traffic and allow the original bridge to be closed.
A new road surface and approach road were installed also including fencing and footpaths. Associated drainage works and landscaping of the affected areas were also completed.
Coffey Construction Limited completed a containment system/access platform to ensure that there was no requirement to enter the river. CCL also completed a full survey of the steel bridge to ascertain its weight prior to completion of the lifting operations.
