PRESTON WESTERN DISTRIBUTOR ROAD (PHASE 3: BECCONSALL BRIDGE)

LECA® lightweight fill was recently installed for the Becconsall Bridge development on the M55 section of the new Preston Western Distributor Road (PWDR) project.

The delivery took place without the need for any road closures for the traffic intensive M55 motorway. Over 6800m3 of LECA® Lightweight Fill was specified for both ends of the new bridge abutment sections, providing a sustainable lightweight solution with robust stability over delicate ground conditions.

This £200m scheme is being undertaken by Costain Group PLC on behalf of Lancashire County Council and will link North West Preston and the Fylde. This new development is set to open in early 2023.
