Major Milestone Achieved on M20 Junction 4 Project

The Sisk Civils team on our M20 Junction 4 project for Kent County Council achieved a major milestone on Saturday night, 8th October.
 
The 100 tonne steel bridge beams were lifted in by two mobile cranes that were set up on the motorway during a planned 10 hour road closure. The 40 metre long bridge beams were prefabricated and delivered to site by our specialist steelwork subcontractor, Briton Fabricators, at their workshop in Nottingham.
 
Steve Horton, Sisk Area Manager said “this operation has taken months of planning and hard work by our dedicated team on the M20 project. Every detail and contingency must be assessed and planned in order to avoid delays to the traveling public.”
 
The project involves the widening of the existing eastern overbridge above the M20 from two to three lanes by construction of a composite steel and concrete deck on new piled reinforced concrete abutments. The project is due for completion by Christmas 2016.
