THE WIDENING OF HUTTON RUDBY BRIDGE

The author describes the design and construction of works for the widening of a 2-span masonry arch bridge which carries a class 3 road over the river Leven at Hutton Rudby in North Yorkshire. The bridge is listed as of special architectural and historical interest, and consent was given to its widening only on condition that the new work presented the same elevation as the existing one. The new works took the form of extensions to the arch vaults as three-pin structures using precast concrete segments. The existing masonry parapets, spandrels and wing walls were then dismantled stone by stone and re-built on the new elevations. Costs are quoted. /TRRL/
