Work has started on the Mersey Gateway’s main bridge deck, with two bridge building machines launched in the Mersey Estuary in Liverpool, UK.The form traveller machines have moved apart for the first time at the construction site’s south pylon, enabling the construction of the 1,000m-long, £1.75bn six-lane toll bridge deck across the River Mersey — to connect Runcorn and Widnes.The 270t machines — which act as concrete moulds — were assembled at the south pylon earlier this year before being lifted to their starting position at around 25m above the riverbed. Construction teams then cast a pier table — a rectangular shaped platform — around the bridge pylon before preparing to start work on the main bridge deck. Kyuyoung Choi, Merseylink’s operations manager for the main crossing, said of the building process: “Each segment of the bridge deck is made in the same way. Reinforced steel is placed into the mould and we then pour around 130cb m of concrete inside to create each segment.“From the third segment onwards, we install the connection boxes, which are called ‘delta frames’, for the steel stay cables, which are then attached to the upper pylon. The form travellers, which are powered by a hydraulic system, then move forward on a set of rails to the next position and the process is repeated.“The deck segments are cast simultaneously, which allows the bridge deck to ‘grow’ from either side of the pylons until it meets the connecting bridge deck and the structure is complete.”Three pairs of form travellers will be used to build the deck and each pair will operate as a unit — the machines will be launched from the north pylon later this month and from the central pylon in October.They will precast 154 deck segments — each being around 33m wide, 6m long, and taking a week to construct. Cllr Rob Polhill, leader of Halton Borough Council, said: “The three bridge pylons under construction are already giving us a glimpse of a much anticipated view of what will be become a landmark structure in our borough and indeed across the north west.“The launch of the form traveller marks the next, thrilling stage of the project and I’m excited to see the bridge deck emerging across the river.”Work on the bridge deck is expected to finish in summer 2017 with the new bridge opening in autumn 2017.
The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust has secured planning consent from the Liverpool City Council for a new cancer hospital in Liverpool, UK.Laing O'Rourke has been selected by the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust to design and build the new facility — part of the Trust’s £157M investment in expanding and improving cancer care — in January 2015.The project, designed by the architectural team at BDP, will include the development of an 11-storey hospital on West Derby Street. The new facility will provide highly-specialist chemotherapy and other drug therapies, radiotherapy, inpatient care, outpatients, cancer support and rehabilitation, bone marrow transplant, a teenage and young adult unit, and urgent cancer care.Liverpool City Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, said: “This is a landmark development which will not only create a first-class new building in this part of the city, but will lead to major improvements in the delivery of services for cancer patients from across the region.“The health campus will be a world-class facility that the whole city can be tremendously proud of and will continue Liverpool’s long tradition of innovation in the fields of medicine and health.”Preparatory construction work is anticipated to commence on site later this year, with the new hospital opening to patients by the end of 2019.
