County Cork, Ireland
N22 BAILE BHUIRNE TO MACROOM ROAD
Barry Transportation Ltd / Construction consortium: Jons Civil Engineering – John Cradock Joint Venture Limited
Three integral bridges with precast box-beams particularly stand out. Two of these are viaduct S26 – Laney Riverbridge, where the beams are 49.90 m long, and viaduct S28 – Sullane Riverbridge with two spans and beams of a similar length (48.75 m). Moreover, the latter addresses the added challenge of being an integral bridge nearly 100 m long. The beams of these two bridges currently hold the record as the longest in Ireland and the UK.
Shortlisted in the Irish Concrete Society 39th Annual Awards infrastructure category.
