Working with AmeySRM for National Highways, MPB is currently working on the replacement of the A533 Expressway bridge over the M56 near Runcorn with a brand new crossing just a few metres further up the motorway. This is MPB's second project for AmeySRM following the successful completion of the M6 J19 scheme in 2021.
The existing bridge, between junction 11 and junction 12, was built in 1971 and is being replaced with a new 67m two-span concrete bridge, consisting of a single two-lane carriageway and a combined footpath and cycleway. MPB is carrying out the construction of all insitu concrete including abutments, central pier located within lane closures on the M56 and the in situ bridge deck construction. MPB works will be complete by Feb 23.
