Rail

Our experience extends to new build rail bridges, new track and associated structures, along with the planned and reactive maintenance work. Our PTS trained management and skilled operatives are able control multiple projects.

We provide cost effective technical design and temporary works solutions. We carry out all our work in a structured and well planned manner, not compromising on health and safety, whilst minimising all risk to rail services.

We are Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme, RISQS, (formerly known as Achilles Link-up) approved to supply construction services to Network Rail, and we are appointed contractor to Network Rail for the following frameworks;

RAIL BRIDGE ABUTMENTS

Neath Port Talbot CBC & Costain

We provided our rail and highways expertise for the new PDR Harbour Way infrastructure scheme, Port Talbot. We constructed the Abutment Walls to Bridge 3, which was a new bridge spanning the main rail line and adjacent to an existing bridge which is the main entrance into TATA steel works.

The abutment walls are approx. 110m long, 8m high and 1.5m wide, with a F4 Concrete Finish specified for the exposed elevations.

All the required temporary works designs were carried out by our in-house Chief Engineer’s department.

RAILTRACK & HEAVY MOBILE EQUIPMENT ROUTES

Tata Steel Europe

Undertaken as part of a multi-million pound investment plan, rail track and heavy mobile equipment route form a critical part of the sites logistics network.

Our contract covered the installation of 1,200-metre rail track extension requiring the excavation work to create a trough installation for new rail track and the breaking out and removal of major obstructions.

The new track is fixed to serviceable concrete sleepers and steel sleepers using pandrol clips, aligned and levelled using both concrete blocks and steel shims; pads and insulator, and connected to the existing live rail track.

We also constructed a series of transition slabs, pedestrian walkways and emergency vehicle crossing points.

RAIL BRIDGE, NEWPORT DOCKS

Associated British Ports

A design and build contract involving the demolition and replacement of an existing Rail Bridge over the dry dock entrance to the River Usk.

The composite steel and concrete replacement bridge has a 42-meter span and is 5.2-metres wide.

The bridge is supported by reinforced concrete abutments on driven steel pile foundations.

The bridge carries a railway line on a ballasted track, which was laid within a seven-week period, causing minimal disruption to the Port activities.

The overall programme was limited to 20-weeks, with an initial eight-week design period.

The project was shortlisted for the ICE Roy Edwards Award.
