Hockley Cycle Path
Hockley Viaduct was constructed in 1891 carrying trains across the Itchen valley at Winchester. The 600m long 33 span structure fell into disuse during the 1960’s and is within the newly formed South Downs National Park.
Avon Construction won the contract to carry out the restoration work and waterproofing that would enable the viaduct to be used as part of the National Cycle Network Route 23.
The works involved:
- 500m sq of repointing
- Demolition and cleaning and reuse of 20,000 bricks
- 600m length of fibre reinforced concrete deck
- 1.2 km of brick coping removal and replacement
