A E Yates Ltd. were proud to be present at the opening ceremony for the newly installed Roch Valley Bridge. This scheme was successfully delivered by A E Yates in collaboration with Wilde Consulting Engineers and CTS Bridges Ltd. through the STAR Procurement Framework. The bridge is supported on CFA piled reinforced concrete bank seats abutments and has a span of 42m with a clear square width of 3.79m between parapets.

There was an original privately-owned bridge nearby used by local cyclists, farmers and visitors to the nearby fishery. However, this older bridge was faulty and then deemed unsafe for public use. At A E Yates we are proud to work on large projects like this in order allow access to local business’ and create a safer transport for the local community.
We were joined by:

Councillor Alan Quinn:”This bridge has been built in Huddersfield using European steel and that is what public money should be used for… I am delighted that this has been built locally, social value should be a big part of any project… I will now proudly open this bridge as part of the roach valley green way cross.”
