Menai Suspension Bridge footway panel replacement project scoops the Bridges Management Award

Spencer Group’s Menai Suspension Bridge footway panel replacement project has won the Bridges Management Award at this year’s Bridge Design & Engineering Awards.

The Bridges Awards celebrate the sheer ingenuity, project management and cooperative skills of the people behind the design, construction and maintenance of pedestrian, highway and rail bridges in the UK.

Organised by Bridge design & engineering magazine, the awards aim to recognise and honour individual projects and/or organisations for outstanding achievement. The judges commented on the project, saying;

“Demonstrated good inspection and maintenance processes and innovative use of installation equipment for the panels.”

“Change of design approach to adopt precast panels – the quality of finish is clear. Temporary works challenging.”

“Impressive quality control of panel casting through detailed survey. A-frame panel lifting and debris capture positive. Some good solutions here for what were some maintenance issues on an iconic bridge.”

Kerry Evans (Operations Manager of the A55 DBFO on behalf of UK Highways A55 Ltd) collected the prestigious award for the project which involved a collaborative partnership between UK Highways A55, WSP and Spencer Group.

Congratulations to all our partners and the full project team!
