Redirect after Lookup ? -- ASP.net MVC 4 C#

How can I get the below
"LookupByWorkOrderNumber.cshtml"
to just do the redirection or do
some other way since users will have the
http://appstest.com/CASTLE/MAINT_WORK_REQ/LookupByWorkOrderNumber/25011
link, but I need to get them to
http://appstest.com/CASTLE/MAINT_WORK_REQ/Edit/176 ?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
User Steps
 1. user clicks on
    http://appstest.com/CASTLE/MAINT_WORK_REQ/LookupByWorkOrderNumber/25011

 2. below LOOKUP happens
    which returns "176"
      SELECT ID
      FROM MAINT_WORK_REQ
      WHERE (IFSWO = '25011')

 3. automatically redirects to
    http://appstest.com/CASTLE/MAINT_WORK_REQ/Edit/176
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possible Programming Steps ?

 1. add below to MAINT_WORK_REQController.cs

        public ActionResult LookupByWorkOrderNumber(string sabWorkOrderNumber)
        {
            var myPOs =
            (from p in db.MAINT_WORK_REQ
             where
              p.WorkFlowStage == 3 && p.ID == sabWorkOrderNumber
             select p
            );

            return View(myPOs);
        }

 2. create LookupByWorkOrderNumber.cshtml
      ** just a page that runs the above CODE and forwards to
         http://appstest.com/CASTLE/MAINT_WORK_REQ/Edit/176

Controllers are just classes - new one up and call the action method just like you would any other class member:

var result = new AnotherController().Someaction("parameter");
