Project Details

Via competitive tender, APB Group Ltd were awarded Network Rail London North-West Region (North) Package 626, which comprised of six bridge refurbishments

UB207 DCL is comprised of 5no. 6.7m high riveted wrought iron trusses fixed together with top lattice girders and steel deck plates to form a 44.6m clear skew span over the A41 Warwick Road in Solihull. The bridge is located on the Didcot to Chester (DCL) Line.
The scope of work included:
·          De-vegetation and graffiti removal
·          Temporary ‘lift & shift’ of S&T cables in Down cess
·          Remove existing and install 450m of new GRP ballast retention boards with reinforced concrete backfill to trackside and non-trackside bridge girders
·          Reduce brickwork pilaster and install new palisade fencing
·          Brickwork repairs to bridge abutments and wingwalls
Innovative construction techniques were used to allow the ballast board works to be undertaken in sections during short night time Line Blockages, thus ensuring the safe passage of trains at all times.
Liaison was required with Solihull Borough Council for noise monitoring during night-time trackside works within Line Blockages, and for usage of proprietary access scaffolding on footpaths open to the public to enable the roadside brickwork repairs.
