Products in use : Macalloy post tension bars.

Background: The 130m, S–shaped footbridge was one of a number of regeneration projects in Castleford The bridge is the first major bridge in the UK which is fully Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. This ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. The curved Cumaru timber boards have been sourced from sustainable forests in Brazil and were chosen for their durability.

Macalloy Involvement: This pedestrian bridge in Castleford is anchored using Macalloy Stainless Steel Post Tensioning Bars. The PT bars were used within a monopole foundation to secure the precast concrete pile cap and bridge pier legs prior to completing the stressing of the bars.
