Fulscot Bridge Update

Update from Network Rail:

We continue to make good progress at Fulscot Road. Over the last two weeks the major works are as follows:

  • Capping beam to sheet piles ongoing on northern approach.
  • The laying of the new stone fill material to the embankments is now complete.
  • Northern approach re-grade for soil nails complete (to enable nails to be installed to allow opening of road)
  • Soil nail installation recommenced for southern approach.
  • Augured piling started behind southern abutment
  • Approx 50% BT ducting installed within northern approach
  • Approx. 30% of sheet pile ties installed on northern approach

We are still on target for opening the road by early September 2014.
