CCS Scaffolding were instructed by this four way joint venture incorporating four of the united kingdom’s biggest civil contractors Skanska, Costain, Carillion and Balfour Beaty. Building the £1.5bn upgrade to the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon started in November last year. The project includes widening a total of seven miles of the A14 in each direction (across two sections), a major new bypass south of Huntingdon, widening a three-mile section of the A1 and demolition of a viaduct at Huntingdon, which will support improvements in the town.
The project team delivering the biggest road upgrade under construction in the UK. Progress is being gained quickly as foundations and bridge columns for some of the project’s 34 new bridges are installed, which alongside our sister company we undertake all RC works on the project’s section two, from 60metre abutments ten metres high, welding tents, edge protection, access and egress across the entire site. We also provided demolition access scaffolds, formwork scaffolds for reinforced concrete piers, access scaffolds into excavations, falsework erection, system staircase access onto bridge decks, site wide edge protection including for excavations and bridge beams and paraslim bracing. All of the work took place adjacent to fully operating motorways.
