Technical & Development Services (Southern) Limited, acting as Project Managers on behalf of Persimmon Homes, were delighted with the progress made on the initial phase of the road Bridge construction, required as part of the Littlehampton Relief Road works, this week.

The road itself, which will eventually connect from the junction with East Street and Fitzalan Road, through a new roundabout being constructed on the A259 (Worthing Road), heading in a Northerly direction towards the A27, where it will eventually join the Lyminster Road (A283), just South of the Crossbush roundabout.

The first stage of the Bridge crossing itself, saw the creation of the Reinforced Concrete Abutments (Wing Walls), which have been constructed during the past few weeks, following the lifting of Lockdown.

This latest stage, required the lifting of 8 no. Precast Concrete Beams (each weighing 40 tonnes) into place, using a 300-tonne crane, during the early hours of Wednesday morning. Robin Bishop (TDS Southern Ltd Managing Director), commented “the works went really well, everyone involved played their part, with representatives from Breheny’s, BCM, Bains and WSCC, ensuring the works were executed, swiftly and safely.”
