Contract awarded for HS2 temporary works
Steelwork contractor Taziker Industrial has been awarded a contract by VolkerStevin to support the delivery of HS2 on the construction of the Colne Valley Viaduct in Buckinghamshire.
Taziker will be supplying, fabricating and installing the steel deck component of a temporary jetty structure, which has been designed to provide access for the building of foundations for the new viaduct where it crosses a series of lakes.
The temporary jetty will consist of four separate structures with a total length of 990m. The works will also include safety barriers, pedestrian walkways and guardrails. Thirteen additional working platforms will also be built to enable the construction of the cofferdams within the lakes, which in turn facilitate the construction of the permanent piers for the viaduct.
Jarrod Hulme, Managing Director of Engineering Solutions, Taziker said: “The construction of the viaduct in Colne Valley is a spectacular and essential part of the HS2 project. By supplying, fabricating and installing a major component of the temporary jetty, Taziker have the opportunity to show the quality and innovation we can deliver on major projects for major clients within our engineering division.”
