Mersey Gateway

Kier Group plc Contact

Mersey Gateway is a £600m project to design and construct a new 2.2km six lane, 33m wide toll bridge over the River Mersey. The project also includes upgrades to 7.2km of strategic highway network which includes 7 upgraded junctions and 12 new bridges.

There are many large and impressive structures to veiw on the project. The three pylons stand out of the river at 110m, 80m and 125m with the bridge decks, being constructed using form travellers, extending out from each pylon and nearly ready to meet up. The moveable scaffold system continues to construct the South Approach Viaduct and the last precast concrete beam is due to be placed on the Astmoor Bridgewater Viaduct in late March.
