Project Details

Designed to meet highly constrained rail possession limits on the busy main railway line to Ipswich and the Port of Felixstowe, this rural bridge replacement scheme maximised the use of precast concrete. Over 130 tonnes of precast concrete was successfully lifted in to place during a 52 hour weekend rail possession. ABM’s production of composite edge beam/parapet units not only simplified construction on site, but also provided and instant safe working platform over the railway once all the precast units were in place allowing final construction to take place after the route was re-opened with minimal temporary works.
