Bognor Northern Relief Road

Case Study

Banagher Precast Concrete are delighted to have supplied all the Prestressed Concrete Bridge Beams to the Bognor Northern Relief Road Viaduct in West Sussex. Hochtief were the Main Contractor who were employed by the Client, Barratt Homes.

The Bognor Northern Relief Road is part of the wider scheme to develop 1,350 new homes in Felpham and Bersted, north of Bognor Regis. The Felpham section of the Relief Road, is 2.3km in length, and features this spectacular 500m long viaduct that rises 8m above the Lidsey Rife, the Barnham to Bognor Regis rail line and the Bognor Regis flood plain.

The viaduct consisted of 176 Prestressed Concrete Bridge Beams. Each of the sixteen spans was made up of nine Y7 Beams and two YE7 Beams. The Bridge Beams averaged 30m in length and weighed between 40 and 60 tonnes each. We also manufactured and supplied our FRC Decking System which was placed between the Prestressed Concrete Bridge Beams to support the insitu deck.

On completion the Relief Road will give access to 700 new homes at Blake’s Mead, built by developer Barratt Homes and help to ease Bognor Regis’s traffic congestion.
