BWB have been commissioned by Barratt Homes to deliver multi-disciplinary engineering services for this replacement bridge project in Leicester. The existing bridge at Watkin Road provides the main access to their Freemens Meadow development which was completed in 2002, however it is now in a poor condition. Leicestershire County Council have decided that the structure will need to be replaced in order for them to adopt it.

The development of the replacement bridge will be completed in three stages with BWB having so far delivered bridge engineering, geotechnical engineering and surveying services for stage one. Our bridge engineering team have assessed different options, working in close liaison with the council, and identified what needs to be surveyed and which investigations are required. Our Infrastructure Management team have undertaken a topographical survey and produced a REVIT model of the existing bridge.
