When I first started working for Walker Ellis Associates about five years ago the Mersey Gateway project was on my radar and over the years I've followed it's developing status. It's case had been in the pipeline for 15 years so we weren't the only ones to be delighted when it finally got the go ahead. We'd spent a long time following the project and keeping in contact with those involved with the development, so you'll understand our delight when Walker Ellis Associates were awarded the photography contract.
We were thrilled, the contract involves ground progress and time lapse photography for three and a half years.
The Mersey Gateway Project is a major scheme to build a new six-land toll bridge over the Mersey between the towns of Runcorn and Widnes that will relieve the congested and ageing Silver Jubilee Bridge, the scale of the new bridge is the biggest under development in England at the moment.
It's fantastic news it's great to be awarded such a long term contract and get a chance to work with a new client. It's testament to our vast experience in construction photography and time-lapse, our 100% safety record also played a big part in winning the contract.
For us it's really proved that making that early contact is worth while, keeping abreast of the developments can actually pay off in the end.
