Commenting on the installation, Robert Wharton senior project manager for ECL Civil Engineering says, “The box culvert team at FP McCann has successfully helped to design an offsite precast concrete solution to successfully manage the natural water course channels on this development whilst providing load bearing vehicle crossings. The units were quickly and simply installed and it demonstrates the flexibility that concrete box culvert sections can offer.” Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
