Easter Engineers Deliver New Carmuirs Rail Bridge

Published on : Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Network RailWork to replace the railway bridge above Glasgow Road in Carmuirs was successfully completed over the Easter weekend.

 

The new bridge has improved resilience to vehicle strikes and the work carried out over the weekend also prepared the structure for future projects to upgrade track and electrify the line.

 

Engineers worked around-the-clock from Friday night until 03:30 on Monday morning (April 17) to complete the project.

 

First they cleared the old tracks from bridge before lifting the old deck clear.

 

The new deck was then transported in, successfully positioned and landed on the structure before the ballast and tracks were re-laid on both the new deck and the approaches to the bridge.

 

The project was part of our £5m programme of Easter weekend enhancement works, which saw over 1,500 engineers work nearly 30,000 staff-hours to replace and upgrade signalling systems, track, bridges and level crossings at locations in Scotland.

 

Across Britain, 200 projects were completed and £70m invested over the holiday period.
