New Mabey bridge diverts tankers away from Bournemouth community
Leading bridge and engineering services specialist Mabey has installed a new bridge over the River Stour in Bournemouth, England, on behalf of Wessex Water. The Compact 200 bridge – Mabey’s most widely used modular bridging product will allow Wessex Water continued access to Berry Hill Sludge Treatment Centre while diverting traffic away from Throop village.
CEO Michael Treacy of Mabey commented, “Berry Hill has grown to become one of the UK’s major treatment centres, but Wessex Water and the local community have long been concerned about the impact of heavy tankers travelling through Throop village. We’re proud to have worked with them and contractor Lewis Civil Engineering to navigate the planning process and deliver a solution which will enhance the lives of local people.”
The new Mabey Compact 200 bridge, which spans 48-metres, will open for direct access to Berry Hill Sludge Treatment Centre in May.
