Over the weekend, six huge bridge beams were lifted into place above the railway line at Stanton Cross in Wellingborough.

The photo shows the jaw dropping scale of the bridge beams which form part of the railway bridge at Stanton Cross.

Each of the six bridge beams is a staggering 41m long and each weigh over 30T.

Paul Soutar, Bovis Homes, Operations Director, responsible for Stanton Cross, said:

“We are delighted that the bridge installation was a success this weekend and I would like to thank the team for their hard work. The railway bridge installation is an important milestone for the project and we are all now looking forward to taking the next important steps in the progression of Stanton Cross”.

The Rail Bridge is located to the north of Wellingborough train station. It is an integral part of the first major road route into Stanton Cross, Route 4.

Route 4 will run from Midland Road, across the railway and through a new town and country park into the new development.Action shot of bridge beams in the air
