The three year deal will ensure a steady supply of work at CBUK’s Darlington plant as fabrication work will last up to 18 months.
CBUK general manager Andy Hall told the Northern Echo: “We are delighted to have this contract, it is superb.
“The good thing is it gives us a base load for the Darlington factory for 12-18 months.
“When the UK market drops we tend to look overseas a little bit more.
“CBUK is pursing similar overseas projects and negotiations continue on other contracts in other countries and we anticipate being able to announce these in the near future.”
The bridges will be exported in kit form to Sri Lanka where they will be erected under supervision by a CBUK management team.
