Bypass' 1,000th beam just grand

AWPR 1000th beam lifted into place


The project’s 1,000th beam has been lifted into place at the new Goval Junction. A total of 133 beams have been placed across six bridges, enabling road users to travel between the AWPR and local areas, including Parkhill, Balmedie, Newmachar, Turriff, Ellon and Old Meldrum.

The first beams for the project arrived back in October 2015 when 23 beams, each 33m long, were put into place at the Tipperty Underpass. Now, less than two years later, with 17 beams at 15.9m long being installed at Goval, over 1,000 beams have been delivered to the north east and lifted into place; 40 of which were almost 50m long.
