A180 bridge damaged after digger collision will cost £1m to replace
A BRIDGE on the A180 that was damaged when hit by a digger being transported on a truck will cost about
£1 million to replace.
As reported, a lorry carrying the JCB digger smashed into the bridge on October 30, showering debris on the road and forcing closure of the eastbound carriageway between Immingham and Stallingborough.
The bridge was so severely damaged that a section had to be demolished on November 2, leaving just half a bridge, over the westbound lanes.

Yesterday, a Highways Agency spokesman told the Grimsby Telegraph that it will definitely replace the bridge and that it will cost in the region of £1-million.
It will also mean more road closures – probably overnight – of the kind that caused 40-minute delays coming into Grimsby the day after the bridge was damaged.
The agency is considering design options and does not know when work will take place.
