Sika supplied the concrete repair and total corrosion management system to extend the lifespan of a city centre flyover, with the products’ effective and easy-use enabling the vital refurbishment to be carried out with minimal disruption to the thousands of commuters who use the route daily.
Anlaby Road flyover is a four-lane carriageway road bridge on one of the main commuter routes to Hull central, spanning the main network rail route into the city centre.
Work on the bridge’s repair began in March 2016. The full refurbishment involved structural concrete repairs, corrosion inhibitors, anti-carbonation coatings and safety fencing. Sika supplied the project’s concrete repair and total corrosion management system. After the repairs had been carried out, Sika FerroGard® 903+ corrosion inhibitor was applied to the areas outside of the repair areas.
Richard Snow, Director at BOSA Contracts, said: "Sika products were specified due to their excellent historical performance, giving all those involved in the flyover’s refurbishment peace of mind. As a manufacturer, Sika was able to supply a full range of materials to solve the whole range of repair issues".
Thanks to the superb experience and diligence of BOSA’s on-site teams and the proven quality of Sika’s concrete repair and total corrosion management system, Anlaby Road flyover has been given a new lease of life, allowing it to remain a landmark part of Hull city centre’s travel network for many years to come.
