Broadmeadow Bridge – Ireland. Push Launch – Bridge Construction.
You can find our multi-span bridge project on the M1 Motorway in Ireland. The construction took place over Swords Estuary to the North of Dublin. Due to site conditions, the box-girder bridge the contractors had to construct by the push-launch method, with the team incrementally building the main structure on one side of the river, then jacked over the supporting piers.
The elaborate formwork required, the design followed collaboration with reinforcement and pre-stressing specialists, Freyssinet. The main contractors were an Ascon Nuttall joint venture.
