VINCI Construction UK have removed the West Link Bridge at New Covent Garden Market successfully. It has taken three years of planning and six weeks of intensive works, all around the live operational market. The team removed the 60 year old asset with no impact to the surrounding operation. Over the last six weeks the Bridge has undergone deconstruction work involving concrete slab removal using brokks, and excavators and structural steel work removal using cranes over a weekend possession.
The removal was executed with no dust, vibration, noise or complaints from the Market and it has been a huge success. It has not been an easy task, causing numerous challenges for the team. Some had said that they had considered this task 'impossible' so very well done to the team.
