Resurfacing Viaducts and Approaches
Last updated on 23 Mar 2010
Following a tendering exercise, WA Fairhurst have been appointed as consulting engineers to design and supervise these works on site.
As a first stage a study and trials will take place to determine the most suitable system of waterproofing and surfacing to apply to the viaducts.
The resurfacing work on the viaducts is currently scheduled to take place in 2012/13. However, following the trials a decision will have to be taken, given the future use of the bridge, on the most suitable course of action. A full waterproofing and resurfacing scheme would involve weekend carriageway closures.
The resurfacing of the north rock cut will have to take cognisance of the Forth Replacement Crossing tie in and is likely to be limited to overnight wearing course removal and reinstatement.
