RESAPOL – Redbridge Viaduct
Resapol – Redbridge Viaduct
Redbridge Viaduct is a 50 year old bridge carrying westbound traffic out of Southampton over Test Lane, the railway and the River Test. A potential structural issue with the bridges was made apparent after an independent report had found them to be in “significant poor condition”, with the main damage appearing within the concrete underneath the structures.
Hampshire County Council initially appointed Skanska to manage the repair work on the Redbridge Viaduct which started in early 2020. Skanska have since sub-contracted the specialist concrete repair works to Concrete Repairs Ltd (CRL), who are one of the UK’s leading specialist asset maintenance building and structures contractors.
Hampshire County Council, Skanska and CRL, together with leading specialist material manufacturers’ Weber Saint-Gobain and Fosroc, specified a system which would repair and protect the viaduct for the next generation.
Resapol, the UK’s leading specialist construction chemical distributor has helped with the supply and service required for this massive project despite the limited storage space available on site. Resapol’s local branch in Southampton have been able to supply materials on a same day basis to ensure the project runs on schedule and without delay.
Resapol have currently supplied:
- webercem five star repair concrete CP
- webercem mortar CP
- Renderoc DS
- Renderoc DSR
William Sinnott, the Senior Contracts Manager at CRL commented: “Resapol have been competitive, resourceful and have provided a great service between the site team and material manufacturers”.
