Construction of abutment walls to Bridge 3 which spans the Swansea-London Main Railway Line and is adjacent to an existing bridge which is the main entrance into the TATA steel works.
The walls are 110m long, 8m high and 1.5m wide. F4 Concrete Finish was specified for exposed elevation.
This was a labour only contract with Andrew Scott undertaking all temporary works design.
The PERI system minimised disruption to the main railway line by minimising the number of night-time possession needed to safely meet the project’s programme.
