Osborne Completes First Phase of Pier Strengthening Work on M4 Elevated Section
Osborne has completed the first phase of work to strengthen the piers on the M4 elevated section which is a critical road, over the A4 in West London.
Osborne has just competed this work which included strengthening a number of piers on the bridge, drilling and installing stainless steel strengthening bars as well as taking the opportunity to carry out any concrete repairs. This work was carried out to prolong the life of the existing asset.
Osborne Customer Programme Manager, Jamie Harrison said: “Engineers have been working from scissor lifts, which save time and delay for road users, as the roads don’t need to be closed and traffic can keep flowing throughout the works.” Osborne is mid way through the project and will be starting on phase two of the works which are due to be fully completed this later on this year.
Osborne is carrying out this work on behalf of the Highways Agency as part of the Connect Plus contract.
