Milestone Reached on A737 Dalry Bypass With Bridge Beams Lifted Into Place

8th February 2018

Last week, the team on the A737 Dalry Bypass project received a special site delivery, with 5 large beams arriving in the early hours of the morning under police escort.

The mammoth reinforced concrete beams made their way through the town of Dalry to reach site, before installation on the Blair Road Overbridge.

Farrans Construction Manager, Tristram Browne, was delighted to see another project milestone.

“The arrival and installation of the beams for the overbridge at Blair Road marks a landmark on this project,” he said.

“This is a key structure on the A737 route and we are pleased to report that we remain on target for completion in Winter 2019”.

Farrans is currently undertaking the A737 Dalry Bypass project in Joint Venture with Roadbridge.

The A737 Dalry Bypass project involves the construction of a new bypass to the east of the town of Dalry and associated junctions to connect to the existing A737 trunk road.

Completion of the Dalry Bypass will encourage improved economic and employment opportunities through better journey time reliability for motorists and businesses along the length of the A737.

In addition, the Dalry Bypass will help separate local from strategic traffic and lead to improved safety for both rural road users and communities.
