The scheme is located at the intersection of the A184 and A194 at White Mare Pool Interchange, Wardley, Tyne and Wear.
Details of the Works
There are two three span bridges at this interchange which carry the A184 dual carriageway over the A194 circulatory. This scheme requires the removal and reconstruction of the reinforced concrete bearing shelves to the abutments at each bridge and the repair of corrosion damage to the reinforced concrete intermediate leaf piers using concrete replacement and cathodic protection.
It is a requirement that the A184 and A194 remain open to traffic throughout the works period, albeit that some overnight road closures will be allowed for critical activities and narrow and reduced lane running will be permitted at other times. It is envisaged that contra-flow working will be required, which in turn will require the construction of temporary carriageway crossovers and adjustments to existing street lighting.
