MPB acted as Principle Contractor on this construct only contract.
The works comprised of:
Limited possessions and a desire to avoid utilising a Christmas OROR possession to deliver best value for the client meant developing bespoke working methods and temporary works. To enable the construction of the reinforced concrete abutments during normal working hours MPB developed a combined earth retention/protection screen design which once erected and bonded enabled the abutments to be fully constructed during normal working hours. The ability to install all PCC beams during 2x8hr possessions with reduced working time due to the presence of OLE using previous experience and detailed planning. The above resulted in the scheme being delivered in a single 30hr OROR possession to enable the demolition and OLE adjustments to be complete and the remaining works being undertaken with standard railway access.
