A three-span railway footbridge was installed at Thornaby Station in Teeside, during a full night-time rail, station and road closure, taking place over three weekends. The bridge measured 41.3m overall length x 2.5m wide.
The bridge has solid infill panels over the railway lines which ensure pedestrian safety. As an additional safety measure the bridge deck and steps have a non-slip surface. The bridge deck was manufactured using GRP Fibreline HD40 and the steps leading up to the bridge are manufactured using steel treads with a GRP nosing system with BGP courduroy strips at the landing area. Phenolic plates were provided to reduce the heat caused by the diesel railway engines.
CTS worked closely with the client, Birse/Balfour Beatty who commented that they were extremely pleased with the work carried out and the professionalism of the company.
