CBUK have been awarded a contract for the supply of 5 bridges, totalling some 1600 tonnes of structural steelwork. The heaviest of these is a 104m long 2 span truss bridge weighing in at 670 tonnes. This bridge is to be constructed off line and launched under possession across the railway lines immediately over the existing Nottingham railway station.
The transfer deck forms part of Network Rail’s £850 million project to upgrade the Reading railway Station. It is a 30m wide transfer deck that can be accessed by escalator, lift or stairs from all of the through station platforms. The transfer deck will be positioned to the west of the Grade II listed Three Guineas public house, designed by Brunel and incorporated into the main station buildings on the south side.
