In an engineering marvel, HS2, Ltd has delivered the world’s longest “field slider” to help a 12,600-tonne bridge over the M42 in Warwickshire. Shifting the bridge to its location throughout the freeway took a bit over 40 hours at 4 meters per hour, seven hours forward of schedule. HS2 and its contractors partnered with Nationwide Highways to hold out this advanced operation. The bridge was inbuilt six months on land subsequent to the freeway. The 86-meter-long big construction has a base, three partitions, and an higher slab. The sliding mechanism was designed by the specialist civil and structural engineering firm Freyssinet. It allowed the field to be pushed into place over the freeway on a information raft for a distance of 165 meters, believed to be the longest field slide on the planet. A crew of 450 individuals labored day and evening on this unimaginable operation to maneuver the bridge to its location on the M42.
