WEC CCTV manufacture 65 camera masts for Mersey Gateway Project
WEC CCTV, a UK manufacturer of camera mounting structures, has supplied 65 specially designed camera masts for the new Mersey Gateway Bridge.
The Lancashire-based specialist secured all three parts of the project to manufacture 9 trolley head masts, 40 tilt over radar masts, and 16 cantilever masts which straddle the highway and mount ANPR cameras.
It took eight months for the company’s highly-skilled team of engineers to complete the project for the Mersey Gateway, which is a multi-million pounds transport scheme between Runcorn and Widnes in Cheshire, England.
The main part of the project was the construction of the toll bridge spanning the River Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal. The crossing, which opened in October 2017, has three traffic lanes in each direction and provides a much needed link between the towns.
Mike Allison, WEC CCTV Sales Manager, said: “The whole scheme was carried out in line with the project’s tight timescale and specific requirements. This was a fantastic project to be involved with, working alongside some other major companies.”
