USL Ekspan Replaces Bridge Expansion Joints on UK’s Iconic A19 Tees Flyover

A major international project is the refurbishment of the UK’s iconic A19 Tees Flyover, a high-level, six-lane bridge that connects Stockton and Middlesbrough across the River Tees. In order to support heavy vehicle traffic while protecting the surrounding bridge structure, USL Ekspan replaced eight of the nearly 6,400-foot‑long motorway’s expansion joints with its Britflex BEJ and MEJS expansion joint systems.

During installation, USL Ekspan faced challenging operating conditions impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to ensure the project would stay on track, USL Ekspan worked closely with the client to split the expansion joint installation works into two phases.

During phase one of the project, USL Ekspan replaced four two-element joints with the Britflex BEJ system. Phase two involved replacing the larger joints with MEJS, a multi-element expansion joint system.

After its successful completion in early 2020, this upgraded bridge structure ultimately opened the door to similar projects throughout the UK’s highways network.
