UK: Turntable technology for Severfield girders

As part of the highways England M20 junction improvement scheme, Severfield UK has appointed Collett to facilitate the delivery of six paired plate girders for a new interchange junction in Kent.


Each of the six 41 m long sections (three for the east bridge and three for the west bridge) originated at Severfield’s structural steel facility in Bolton near Manchester. They were loaded by using a 500 t mobile crane. The transport was carried out by 6-axle and 5-axle bogie trailers.


With each of the trailers featuring a turntable on the front and rear bogies, the loads could successfully navigate the route across the country and arrived safely at the development site in Kent 470 km away. (ben)
