First bridge installed on the Lilbourne Wind Farm project

Following the recent demolition of an old masonry arch bridge on Blackwell's Lilbourne Wind Farm site near Rugby, the site team successfully installed a newly built, permanent structure.

Designed in trademark green and emblazoned with the company logo, the new bridge was manufactured in Blackwell's in-house engineering workshop in Earls Colne and measures 8970mm long x 5200mm wide. All welded construction was designed to DMRB specification by Lilbourne Project Manager and Blackwell staff member, Stephen Graham, in conjunction with our design partner, Grontmij.

The replacement bridge has been designed to accommodate the flow of water through the river channel, which was restricted by the old bridge, with the aim of reducing the risk of flooding in the immediate vicinity. The bridge will also provide a more substantial structure, capable of carrying turbine components when deliveries to the Lilbourne site commence.

A second bridge, which will be used as an agricultural structure to replace an existing steel bridge, is due to be installed on the Lilbourne site in a few weeks' time.
