The Croydon Flyover forms part of the A232 which connects Orpington with Ewell south of London. The flyover was constructed as part of an unfinished ring road scheme conceived in the Croydon Plan of 1951 and was opened in 1969.
The main contractor Kier has recently been awarded a major refurbishment contract and selected Metrail Construction Ltd to carry out the replacement of over 300m of expansion joints on the flyover.
The client specified IKO Permatrack Heavy Duty Expansion Joints as used on the refurbishment of the Chiswick flyover in London as the best technical solution for the Croydon Flyover.
Metrail Construction, as an accredited contractor for the installation of Permatrack joints, took up the challenge and completed the works on time and on budget.
Kier is a valued customer of Metrail Construction having also worked with Kier on the M23 smart motorway upgrade.
