Award of the contract for Crosby New Bridge - Design & Build New Deck & Parapets to PBS Construction for £179,986. The is a capital scheme and exceeds the budget of £150,000 but is within acceptable parameters.

Reasons for the decision:

The Bid tender has been accepted as it is very close to the estimated cost.

Alternative options considered:

Continue to repair the concrete beams and leave the approaches sinking slightly either side of the deck. Repair delamination to the render on the parapet. 2 of the central beams were below the 40T capacity, although only assessed at 38T, so not a major drop.

FRP deck replacement was originally tendered for, but was more expensive with no significant carbon saving.
