An account is given of the building of a new bridge at Lyne in Surrey to take existing railway lines over the M25. Factors leading to the choice of a cable stayed bridge on spread footings are discussed and include restrictions on depth of superstructure, a span of 110 M and minimal disruption to rail traffic. Brief construction details are given of the foundations, abutments, bridge deck, edge beams towers and cable stays. Two towers are central to the bridge and each has anchorages for eight cable stays, placed at two levels. Post tensioning of the edge beams and cable stays is by the BBRV system.
