Fairfield Engineering Solutions will be working alongside our sister company Fairfield Control Systems on the M+E package for the Redcliffe Road Bascule Bridge.

Drawing on our expertise in bridges & moving structures we are honoured to be playing a part in this prestigious multi-million-pound project.
Redcliffe Road Bridge was constructed in 1942 with a major upgrade completed in 1996. Redcliffe is a three-span moveable bridge comprising of two simply supported approach spans and a single leaf bascule span. It carries Redcliffe way across the floating harbour between Queens Square and St. Mary Redcliffe Church, Bristol. This Bridge is an iconic part of Bristol’s floating harbour and will undergo refurbishment works throughout 2021.
Michael Doney, Managing Director at Fairfields commented “This is a great opportunity for Fairfield Engineering Solutions to work collaboratively with Fairfield Control Systems to provide a turnkey M&E package. This iconic bridge is in good hands with Cleveland Bridge’s rehabilitation team and our team’s knowledge and experience combined”.
