Member News: Ordsall Chord Update

Apr 21st, 2017 - Last updated at Apr 21st, 2017


Work was carried out at the Ordsall Chord site (pictured) over the Easter weekend.

The middle section of the Chapel Street bridge was removed and replaced with a new middle rib. This was a highly complicated procedure due to the position of the bridge and close proximity of residential apartments. The beams are now being bolted into place with this section of work due to be finished later in the week.

Ballast work was completed on the Middlewood viaduct, now new track is being installed throughout the week.

The programme is running to schedule and will be completed on time.
