Project Brief:

This contract requires the replacement of an existing timber railway bridge with a new concrete precast bridge. The new bridge spanned eighteen metres across a tidal river and as part of the contract the installation was to be completed whilst the old bridge was left in place and the railway line was fully operational. This contract involved extensive temporary works construction, piling to twenty eight metres, abutment construction and bridge span installation.
