Visit to the Power Road Bridge Project

  • Hochtief Construction Office Compound Gunnersbury Avenue London, England W3 8JX (map)

Women in Transport members are being offered the unique opportunity to take part in a visit to the construction site of  the Power Road Bridge Project.

Transport for London, together with the Hochtief project team, is replacing the Power Road Bridge which carries the A406 North Circular Road (Gunnersbury Avenue) over the railway. It is planned to re-open all four lanes on Gunnersbury Avenue this Autumn. The final works are due to be completed by summer 2019.

As well as giving an overview of the challenging bridge installation project, the team will share best practice on how the combined TfL/HUK team (both male and female) are delivering the works and on how their work culture, based on inclusion, support and collaboration has resulted in:

  • So far Zero accidents or incidents since start of the project in Sept 2014, 1450 days to date.

  • Several TfL awards including the first (and only one so far) TfL surface transport site to get the Beacon award.

  • Considerate Constructors Scheme Silver award for last two years.
