Croom Concrete has installed 12m of precast box culverts to create a river crossing in Mayo.

Croom was commissioned by Mayo County council to install and manufacture the four, 3m wide, 1.5m high box culverts. The end culverts had head walls precast into them, this meant less work before the road could re-open. All of the culverts used in this job were made to the eurocode design standards, which are Britain and Ireland’s standards for structural design.

Croom Concrete culverts were used to make what would be a difficult and time consuming job into a safer and quicker solution for replacing the bridge. Mayo county council allowed two days for the job but the culverts were installed in just under three hours after arriving on site.

Kieran Erwin from Mayo County Council said “The culverts installed were of exceptional standard and they fitted together perfectly in very little time”.
