Tinsley Bus Rapid Transit Link

Anderton Concrete are currently supplying their Keystone Retaining wall system to a new scheme in Sheffield.

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) North is a high quality and efficient public transport service that has been developed to help people travel into and between the centres of Rotherham and Sheffield. It will provide access to existing leisure, commercial and manufacturing facilities as well as facilitating economic growth by providing links to existing and proposed employment sites in the Lower Don Valley.

BRT North will improve the customer experience by raising the quality of the bus offer, as well as improving capacity, reliability and quality on the bus network. It will provide essential congestion relief for local traffic at junction 34 south of the M1, through the creation of a new highway link under the motorway at Tinsley in Sheffield.

The scheme is being delivered in partnership by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) and Sheffield City Council (SCC).

This project, when complete, will be one of the largest ever single Keystone schemes supplied in the UK and it will also hold another couple of records. The structure will be the longest back to back wall at approximately 500m long and it will also be the highest at around 12m. The wall are being installed by P C Construction, who are specialists in the field of reinforced earth structures and has been designed by Tensar International using their RE500 grids.
