ARC -Stage 2 - Long John Hill



Value £120k
Duration 8 Weeks
Main Contractor Volker Fitzpatrick
Client Network Rail

The first of the Network Rail Bridge upgrade schemes saw Sian constructing a bespoke RC bridge deck with integral parapets off line and at ground level.

The scheme required a complex falsework system to be designed and approved by Network Rail allowing the deck to be temporarily supported during construction works.

A secondary heavy duty propping scheme was developed to allow the bridge deck to be temporarily supported until SPMTs were brought in to jack, lift and land the bridge structure into place.

This complex project involved extensive Temporary Works design and planning coordination with both the main contactor, the permanent works design and Network Rail to deliver this successful project on time and in line with Network Rails blockade requirements.
