Another replacement rail bridge ready to go…..


Trial erection of this 540 tonnes structure which will provide increased clearances over a twin track railway has just been completed at ABM’s Tuxford production facility prior to delivery to site. The complex , heavily skewed structure combines pre-stressed, reinforced and masonry composite concrete elements and incorporates embedded ducts to allow rapid reconnection of utility services. Note the ‘Brick Sandwich’ detail, where the masonry works with the concrete core to form the vehicle restraint parapet whilst matching the appearance of the original structure.
