Rail crossing on track
Allerton Bridges’ new Durham fac- tory has succesfully completed its first project, the Marske Mill Lane Overbridge in Saltburn.
The 23m long x 8m wide structure replaces a Victorian railway cross- ing and has increased the bridge’s weight carrying limit from 4t to 40t.
Allerton Bridges completed the 45t steel construction at its fabrica- tion shop in Tursdale, near Belmont, Durham, in four weeks. The £140,000 contract, commissioned by Network Rail, is the first to be produced by the team following the opening of the fa- cility in October 2008.
John Riddle, Managing Director of Allerton Bridges, said: “The bridge side of the market is very buoyant at the moment and this is just the first of a number of orders we have in place over the coming months.”
