Award of the contract for Hawes Rope Makers
Culvert Strengthening (No.1972) to JN Bentley for £63,044
from the Revenue Budget. The form of contract will be a NEC4 ECC
Option A and awarded under the CECF 2021.
To comply with NYCCs statutory duty to
maintain its Highway structures under Highways Act 1980. The bridge
requires strengthening works to ensure it can withstand the traffic
loads imposed upon it.
The alternative is to not do anything, which
could result in a continued deterioration of the structure which we
believe would require restrictions on use. This would cause
enormous disruption for any large vehicles and farm traffic as this
is the main route through the dales.
An options reports was prepared and strengthening of the existing structure was preferred over replacement due to significant cost savings.
