M6 gantry installation
Kier Highways has achieved a key project milestone installing three large cantilever gantries over a nine-night period while the motorway network remained open to customers.
Three 18-metre gantries, each weighing 24 tonnes, now span the carriageway on the M6 between J14 (Stafford) and J15 (Stoke). They were installed with a contraflow in operation, which meant that one lane of traffic was able to stay on the main motorway carriage travelling north on the southbound side. Traffic on the southbound side ran in three narrow lanes. A team of 57 worked each of the nine nights to install the gantries along with six smaller MS4 gantries and 28 lighting columns.
