Lady Bay Heritage Bridge, Nottingham

Danaher & Walsh were appointed by VIA to do an emergency repair to a heritage bridge on an important route into and out of Nottingham City Centre.

Project Overview

Lady Bay Heritage Bridge was hit by a skip lorry which ran through the brickwork parapet and fell approximately 6 metres, landing on a storage yard on the bank of the River Trent in Nottingham. This was a headline bulletin on the local news station (Central News) as it caused an immediate road closure on a very busy route in Nottingham.

VIA called Danaher & Walsh to visit the site at short notice with the VIA structures team to ascertain the damage and undertake an emergency repair to the brickwork parapet and replace the damaged crash barrier.

We undertook to recover/salvage as much of the existing brickwork as possible, then source a similar/matching reclaimed brick from a local reclamation supplier to make up the shortfall. We promptly employed a trusted bricklayer with the skills to undertake the works to the heritage structure. We commenced within one month of the initial contact.

The works were completed in a very short period of time Just 8 weeks from initial contact to handover and road re-opening.

D&W Small Works Team received a commendation from the client for our prompt action and quality of works undertaken, which has led to several other enquiries and job awards since this time.
