Abstract: This paper describes the problems which were encountered when a pipeline forming part of the British National Transmission System, crossed the proposed route of the M.20 Motorway.

Due to various factors, the decision was taken at the time of construction of the pipeline to incorporate it in a bridge, which will be constructed around the pipeline when the Motorway is finally built.

This was a most unusual or quite probably unique solution to a problem which has often been encountered before with pipelines of any system. Naturally, the decision was not taken lightly and due consideration was made of all the possible problems which could be encountered.

Descriptions are given of all the various points considered during the planning and design of the bridge which was carried out by the South Eastern Road Construction Unit of the Department of the Environment in close liaison with Engineers of the Pipelines Department, British Gas Corporation.

Other problems were also encountered during the actual site construction and these will be described.
