Twelve Year 10 students from schools across Runcorn and Widnes including Sandymoor Free School, Saints Peter and Paul Catholic College, Wade Deacon High School, The Heath School and Weaverham High School will be taking up placements.

They will spend time with Merseylink’s expert teams learning about the civil engineering techniques used for the main bridge and road construction, as well as materials, communications and the environmental side of the project. They will also take part in health and safety inductions and will be given a tour of the site as part of their work experience.

Neil Wilcock, Employment and Skills Coordinator for Merseylink, said: “We’re delighted to host these placements, which offer a real insight into the science and engineering behind Halton’s new bridge. I’d like to think that these young people will be inspired by their time with us and that their experience may help them decide on their future career paths.”

Merseylink has hosted 35 work experience placements since the project started in May 2014.
