“Many thanks to the whole team for hosting our visit on Christmas Day. It was really fascinating to see the attention to detail, the excellent layout of the site and the good spirit and morale among the team. Brilliant! I was delighted to travel over the bridge and to see the results of all your hard work. Well done to you all and thank you for your dedication and professionalism.” – Mark Carne, CEO Network Rail
Rail bridge replacements are risky business and it was critical to passengers near Basingstoke that the Broad Street Bridge was demolished, rebuilt and open to trains within the 52 hour Christmas blockade.
Situated on a rural road with restricted access, the life-expired brick under-bridge required smart design and methodology to overcome the challenging location and time constraints.
