Surrey road bridge handed back six hours early

At Farnham Road, in Guildford, Surrey, the Osborne team  safely and successfully completed Phase One of a scheme to strengthen the superstructure of the road bridge during a Christmas Period Possession, handing back the track six hours earlier than planned.

Comprehensive scaffolding arrangements were installed to enable access to the soffit and parapets and the completed works included brickwork repairs, rivet replacements and temporary strengthening plates in preparation for the main strengthening works next Christmas.

During the possession, this high profile project was visited by our customer, the Rail Asset Management team, Council representatives and the Secretary of State, Chris Grayling.
