Stainless steel and steel for Colham Bridge, Uxbridge, West London

Work to transform Colham Bridge into a striking local feature was part of Hillingdon Council’s £2m Yiewsley and West Drayton town centre improvement programme.

This project was a £200,000 stainless steel and steel bridge installation in Uxbridge, West London.

The white-painted steel base was built at Darke’s Stilton headquarters and transported to site on a Friday evening. The road was closed and Darke’s engineers assembled the partially fabricated stainless steel arch in situ in the road on its side over Friday night and Saturday.

A 120 tonne crane then arrived on the Sunday morning to lift the bridge in place onto pre-drilled anchors.

The whole process was repeated the following weekend for the east side of the bridge.
