Date: 2006

Summary: Concrete Repairs to the Raith Bridge were carried out in two distinct phases.

concrete repairs to Raith Bridge

Phase 1 involved strengthening of the box girder by the addition of new steel plates and stiffeners, to support unrestricted normal vehicle loading over the bridge to current standards and also increase capacity for abnormal vehicle loads. Contract value of £1.8m. Sep 2004 - Feb 2006

Phase 2 included remedial work to reconstruct an end abutment gallery, to replace end ballast walls over the abutment.  Replacement of bridge bearings, re-waterproofing and re-surfacing. This work was required to counteract cracking and movement of the existing walls which restricted the expansion and contraction of the bridge due to temperature. Contract value of £2.2m. March to June 2006.

During the course of the concrete repairs contract, Nufins supplied NUCEM CONCRETE (54m3) DECK REPAIR RAPID (21m3) for deck levelling and deck patch repairs; these polymer-modified materials allow deck waterproofing membranes to be applied next day.

Other products supplied include NUGROUT FLOWABLE CONCRETE, EPICON CRACK INJECTION RESIN and BRITDEX MDP REPAIR MORTAR.
