OB702 Roscommon Bridge Widening & Road Alignment

The existing bridge OB702 was widened to take the skew out of the road. The overbridge comprised of Opti-Cadre units and reinforced earth abutments.

The bridge was widened to the Claremorris side by approximately 10.5m while leaving the existing structure intact and maintaining traffic flow. The reinforced earth walls were constructed with little interference to the existing passing traffic and the railway line. Other works included palindine fencing, high level safety barrier and road surfacing. The work was necessary to create a straight road across the railway line to enable all local traffic to traverse the bridge safely. This project was the first of its type to use Opti-Cadre units to extend an existing bridge.
