Award of the contract for Toad Hole structure replacement to Thomas Armstrong Ltd for £126,347.

Reasons for the decision:

Tender to carry out planned capital works to Toad Hole Bridge and carry out NYCC statutory duty to maintain its Highway structures under Highways Act 1980, the bridge requires strengthening works to ensure it is fit for purpose.

Alternative options considered:

NYCC has a statutory duty to maintain its Highway structures under the Highways Act 1980. 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 in the near future, this which could result in a longer closure and higher expense to rebuild as well as disruption for any imposed weight restrictions on quarry traffic which frequently use the bridge.
