Collett has delivered six giant paired plate girders for Severfield as part of the Highways England M20 Junction Improvement Scheme where VINCI is main contractor.

Each of the six loads originated at Severfield’s structural steel facility in Bolton, and were transported 290 miles to the Kent M20 Junction 10a development.

Each of the six plate girders were 41m long requiring 6-axle and 5-axle bogie trailers with turntables to successfully navigate the route.

Each of the paired plate girders were loaded to Collett’s bogie trailers at the Severfield site utilising a 500 Tonne mobile crane before departing under Greater Manchester Police Escorts.

 

The overall Highways England project is to create a new interchange junction 700 metres East of Junction 10 over the M20 and a dual carriageway link road to the existing A2070 Bad Munstereifel Road.

Construction on the project also includes a replacement pedestrian footbridge and a connection to the A20 Hythe Road.

The development is now underway with the junction and link road expected to be open to traffic in Autumn 2019 and the full scheme completion by Summer 2020.
