Horse Eye & Downs Bridges – East Sussex
Horse Eye & Downs Bridges
East Sussex Highways
Replacement of existing footbridge under a weekend road closure. Ancillary works included service diversion, footpath diversion, new drainage and fencing works.
Horse Eye Bridge
The 8 week project involved coffer damming off the bridges, clearing the silt from the river beds, taking down and rebuilding the parapets, strengthening the river banks and re-pointing the arch structure.
Matching bricks were specially sourced to ensure the integrity of the original design was maintained.
