This single span superstructure, spanning 21m at a skew angle of 17.5, consisted of 6 pseudo arch tubular steel ribs filled with concrete, composite with a reinforced concrete deck slab. The cutting below the bridge was supported by Osgodby retaining walls. The walls were constructed as the cutting was excavated; the cutting slopes being stabilised by a grid of 725 no. soil nails, with the excavated rock face then sprayed with shotcrete which incorporated mesh reinforcement. The concrete was then faced with 1400m2 of reconstituted stone and precast concrete coping stones.
