TIN news:  Balfour Beatty, an international infrastructure company, has completed reconstruction works at Tadcaster Bridge, a historic 18th century grade two listed bridge in UK.
The bridge was closed for the public after it was damaged and partially collapsed because of the force of flood water after heavy rains during Christmas in 2015.
The company had commenced the reconstruction works on the bridge in January last year on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council.
Balfour Beatty Tadcaster Bridge project director Dave Robinson said: “Balfour Beatty is extremely proud to have played a part in rebuilding Tadcaster Bridge, giving back to the local community this important link.
“Due to its grade II listed status we have had to draw on our extensive experience to employ traditional materials and methods to reconstruct the bridge as it was originally built.
“We have also implemented 21st century technology during the reconstruction process, using our in-house team to carry out a 3D survey of the structure to establish geometry for the design of the works.

“We were delighted to be appointed by North Yorkshire County Council, following a successful partnership on the North Yorkshire coastal protection scheme and hope the local community is able to enjoy the reopened Tadcaster Bridge for many more centuries to come.”
The completion of reconstruction works has reunited the East and West side of the town, re-establishing vital links for residents and local businesses.
The infrastructure company claimed that it has used its expertise across the project, including its knowledge of coastal protection schemes, to stabilise the remaining structure, implement a temporary footbridge and widen the existing bridge by two metres.
