Eric Wright Civil Engineering are progressing well on the north Northallerton link road and over bridge

Latest Progress at North Northallerton Link Road and Overbridge

Eric Wright Civil Engineering (EWCE), part of the Eric Wright Group, commenced civil engineering works for the proposed new link road and over bridge at north Northallerton in July this year.  The works, due to complete towards the end of 2021, are being carried out on behalf of Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon Homes.

The new link road and overbridge will join the two new developments at Northallerton, which are currently separated by the Northallerton to Middlesbrough railway line and Brompton Beck.

The strategic road link has been designed in accordance with the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges to accommodate all traffic and provide an attractive east-west route particularly for HGVs that currently have to travel to the town centre or use Friarage Street to travel between the A167 and A684 east of Northallerton.

This will negate the need for users to use Low Gates level crossing and pass through Northallerton town centre. The overbridge is proposed to span over the railway and Brompton Beck, with a view to allow sufficient headroom for future electrification of the line.

Works are progressing well as can be seen from the shots below.  Stormwater attenuation drainage has been installed to the eastern side and Eric Wright Civil Engineering has now started to build up the earthwork bridge embankments to the east and west.
