Sprint Bridge, located on the C5056 linking Burneside to the A6 north of Kendal, suffered severe damage with the loss of stonework and twisting of the bridge arch during Storm Desmond in December 2015.
The project involved the stabilisation and repair work to a traditional masonry arch bridge. The bridge over the River Sprint had suffered significant scour to the western abutment during Storm Desmond flooding in late 2015. The remedial works were to arrest further movement and to install a new concrete saddle.
