Crown Plus pivotal to the restoration and re-opening of “The Iron Giant”

We are delighted to confirm that on 13 January 2022, Bennerley Viaduct was finally re-opened to the public, some 54 years after its closure.

Crown Plus were awarded the restorative contract by Railway Paths Limited to install a new bridge deck, as well as construct new access steps and resurfacing works to eastern approach ramp to allow for safe public access across the bridge, joining a network of existing public cycling and walking paths around the Erewash Valley.
