Demolishing a bridge over Ireland’s busiest road as part of a motorway upgrade, required exacting attention to detail and careful planning from the S Evans & Sons team.
Using ten demolition specification excavators working in tandem, the Osberstown Bridge deck, abutment walls and piers over the M7 were demolished in just 24 hours and 36 hours ahead of schedule.
Eight wheel tipper wagons collected the concrete arisings and took them to an off-site compound ready for crushing to type 6f2 during normal working hours. Finally, a street sweeper cleared the remaining debris from the carriageway, before the motorway reopened.
Completed to the highest professional standards, the project was delivered safely and with minimal disruption to the 80,000 cars that use M7 between Limerick and Dublin each day.
