UNIQUE FOOTAGE CAPTURES A50 WORKS

By timesecholife on in Latest News

Traffic built up in Uttoxeter town centre at several points over the weekend, while increased traffic was seen on rural routes near the dual carriageway as motorists used alternative routes. The construction of a new bridge over one of Britain’s busiest A roads has involved weeks of road works.

TRAFFIC disruption hit Uttoxeter over the weekend as motorists were faced with the closure of the A50 for more than 57 hours.

The road was closed from Uttoxeter to Blythe Bridge at 8pm on Friday through to 5.30am on Monday.

Traffic built up in Uttoxeter town centre at several points over the weekend, while increased traffic was seen on rural routes near the dual carriageway as motorists used alternative routes.

The construction of a new bridge over one of Britain’s busiest A roads has involved weeks of road works.

The impressive installation of six steel beams over the dual carriageway at the weekend has been captured in a minute-long time-lapse photography.

The delicate operation to place six steel beams, each 47 metres long and weighing 45 tonnes apiece, across the A50 dual carriageway at Uttoxeter is part of an upgraded junction with the A522, which also includes three new roundabouts, to support business and unlock land for new housing and economic growth.

The time lapse video can be viewed here.
