Pontsarn Bridge

Client: CADW

Contract Value: £55,000.00

Construction Period: 3 months

This bridge was still one of the most unique and interesting projects that we have carried out. The existing stone arch bridge, which had completely failed, spanned a narrow but deep gorge on a mountain road. For historical reasons, it was decided that no sign of renewal or repair should be apparent on completion.

Marton designed and erected a temporary arch soffit, which was suspended under the existing bridg. the existing bridge was then dismantled stone by stone, every stone marked, numbered and located,and then re-assembled even down to using the same historical components of lime mortar.

The new bridge disguises a reinforced concrete interior, and looks unchanged from the original.
