Bridges to be demolished as part of A5-M1 Link scheme
02/09/2016 Highways Reporters
Two bridges over the M1 near Dunstable will be demolished this month as Highways England progresses with work on the £162 million A5-M1 Link scheme.
The demolition, which will take place during full closures of the M1 over two weekends in September, follows the construction of two new bridges over the M1.
Highways England project manager Karen Green said: “We will be using hydraulic breakers to demolish the bridges, which will create a lot of rubble, so it is essential we close the M1 to ensure maximum safety for road workers and road users. We have worked with Central Bedfordshire Council and other stakeholders to ensure we minimise disruption during the work.”
