Overview of the work completed
LBE1/19A is a single span simply supported footbridge carrying a footpath over the Up and Down Mains of the Leeds – Bradford Lines. The bridge is located approximately 500 metres East of the Bramley station, accessed via 2 footpaths from the North and South. It provides important access to Bramley Station for local residents.
Once temporary diversions were in place, the in-house CML team took on the demolition work to remove the over-burden from the structure, and prepare the deck ready to be cut and removed during night time possession works.
The scope of works included:
Install diversionary route for cyclists/pedestrians
Removal of the Bridge deck Infill
Temporary diversion (via UTX) of the existing BT cables running across the bridge
Dismantling of the Bridge Deck, and removal off site
Prepare existing abutments, Install new Cill units
Install new ‘Bridge Deck’ unit
Install deck drainage and outfall / down pipes
Re-grade footpath approaches
Good relationship with local residents, kept informed throughout the project
Good working relationship with BT to facilitate the cable diversion on programme
All demolition works were successfully completed using in-house resources, with specialist works being undertaken by Baldwin Cranes and Carver Engineering to complete the removal of the old structure and installation of the new bridge.
2 new Cill Beams and the new bridge unit all completed within a single 7hr Possession
Good feedback from the Client team (Network Rail) who were in attendance during the dismantling & installation possessions
This was a challenging project located in the middle of a residential area, which was successfully delivered, safely, on programme and with minimal disruption to the local community.
