Today (Friday 30 October) the Greatworth Community Transport Association in Northamptonshire has become the latest to benefit from the HS2 Community and Environment Fund, as it is announced that they have been awarded just under £75,000 to lease a 16-seater community minibus which will provide a service for the communities of Greatworth and the surrounding area for a period of three years during the main HS2 construction works.
Major engineering milestone completed this weekend (24-25 October), as a 45 metre, 914 tonne modular bridge was driven into place over the A446 in Solihull.
Designed in a virtual world, the bridge took only 45 minutes to be driven into place.
The A446 has been reopened 24 hours earlier than planned.
Durham-based Cleveland Bridge manufactured and supplied 220 tonnes of steel girders for the bridge, while Expanded’s off-site manufacturing factory in Nottinghamshire provided 80 precast concrete modular abutment blocks.
