About VolkerFitzpatrick - A38(M) Tame Valley Viaduct

The project on the A38(M) Tame Valley Viaduct requires strengthening the viaduct via the addition of steel plates, secured in position using a combination of welding and bolting, all completed inside the viaduct's structure. In addition to strengthening, anti-corrosion paint will be applied to the outside of structure, alongside other refurbishment works to help preserve the viaduct’s longevity and minimise the need for future work.


A total three hour session including site induction, introduction to the project, site walk out and close out session - workbook to complete/employability discussion depending on KS3 or KS4. Opportunity for students to learn more about the project and talk to the people carrying out the work.


Bookings are currently unavailable for this site.
