The largest precast concrete arch in the world has been installed over Lancaster Canal.

The milestone canal bridge is part of the Heysham M6 link project for Lancashire County Council and their principal contractor, Costain.

The bridge structure features a clear span of 28.6 metres at a rise of only 3.2 metres, and is the largest precast over filled arch in the world to date.

The canal bridge (pictured above) has been designed, supplied and installed by Asset International Structured Solutions (Asset ISS), exclusive UK & Ireland licensees for Bebo Arch International AG.
