Cudworth and West Green Bypass

Customer:Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council

Value: £16.0 million

The eagerly anticipated scheme will reduce the amount of traffic, especially heavy goods vehicles, using the A628 though Cudworth, and improve access to local employment sites.

The scope of works comprises:

  • Construction of 5.2km of new single carriageway.
  • Construction of 5 roundabouts, a rail bridge over the new road, a road bridge over the new road, 3 underpasses, 9 box culverts for water flow storage, major drainage works, street lighting and signage.
  • Design of the drainage, structures and surfacing.

VHE installed a 110 tonne rail bridge as part of the scheme. The 22m long bridge was lifted into position by a 800 tonne Demag AC700 crane during a 28 hour rail possession. VHE and specialist rail subcontractors CML required only 30 minutes to install the single span bridge deck.

The route runs through the embankment underneath the existing single track rail line connecting manufacturer Ardargh Glass with the Wakefield to Grimethorpe rail line.
