Bescot Footbridge

  • Sector:Transport
  • Client:Network Rail
  • Location:Walsall, West Midlands
  • Value:£104k

Barhale were awarded this contract by Network Rail to undertake the refurbishment of Bescot footbridge. Works included the removal of the substandard existing timber and plywood parapet extension and replaced with a galvanised steel containment system.

The works were a result of Network Rail identifying an issue in regards to the potential for the general public to come into contact with energised overhead line equipment. Also the footpath and the stairs were in need of a major refurbishment.

As this was a new steel structure in proximity to the OLE, an earthing design had to be commissioned and implemented as part of the works.
