Eadon Continue Their Involvement on the Poole Harbour Bridge


Eadon are pleased to confirm the recent news that HOCHTIEF UK have been successful with their tender for the construction of the Twin Sails Bridge, Poole, Dorset.

The Twin Sails project involves the construction of a second bridge in Poole Harbour, the crossing will have a moving section in the form of two bascule (lifting) spans in the middle to allow for the passage of boats. The suggestion of a second crossing was made over 30 years ago and it has taken until now for the project to finally reach the construction stage.

Eadon provided HOCHTIEF with technical assistance on the procurement of the mechanical, electrical and hydraulic equipment throughout the tender process. This has enabled HOCHTIEF to assemble a team which the client clearly agrees can realise the design cost effectively and technically. Eadon will be continuing their involvement with the project through ongoing technical support throughout the construction and commissioning stages.
