The objective: to redirect a Principal Shared Pathway (PSP) and construct a bridge to support signalling and communications cables whilst excavations are underway for the construction of a railway underpass.
This required safely closing off and redirecting part of the public footpath, which, after securing the contract, Caledonia achieved using our Layher Allround Scaffolding to construct an 86m long DDA compliant cycling/pedestrian ramp.
Once the ramp was in place, the client asked Caledonia to assist with building a bridge in the train corridor. The problem with this? The live power lines of up to 132,000 KV on both sides.
To provide the cable bridge, Caledonia worked closely with Layher’s technical team to design a bridge span of 27m using the Layher Allround FW system. Once the communication cables were in place, civil engineering work proceeded to a successful conclusion.
Caledonia’s client was delighted to achieve an outcome that was on time, on budget and above all, safely executed.
