Mabey Bridge is a fantastic Lydney-based company that is a leading international provider of high-quality modular steel bridges, specialising in rapid-build, pre-engineered modular steel bridges to enable accelerated bridge construction.
It is also a key part of the supply chain to the HS2 project. I recently visited Mabey Bridge, along with HS2 Chief Executive Mark Thurston, to catch up with the team.
Friday marked the formal beginning of construction of HS2, a momentous moment. Our country cannot stand still when it comes to building high quality infrastructure.
As with any big construction project, I understand that HS2 divides opinion, but to those who wish to express their displeasure in the comments below, this is a reminder that this Government-backed project is sustaining high quality manufacturing jobs right here in the Forest of Dean and across the country.
