Rochford Overbridge Station Enhancement
Cleshar were Principal Contractor on this design and build project and were responsible for renewing structures and general enhancement works throughout the station.
The Final Account Value was £1,138,169
Scope of the works
Renovating an existing footbridge including sandblasting, structural repairs, new steps, handrails, and painting.
Replacing end of life platform extension with a new GRP structure
Tar mac and drainage installation along platforms
Repairing structural concrete to different sections of platforms within the station
Repairing brickwork on trackside platform walls
Upgrading lighting features, including new columns and foundations
Installing new boundary fencing
It became evident during the project available possession times were severely limited. This impacted the planned methodology for bridge sandblasting.
Cleshar had introduced a hybrid of methodologies, techniques and working hours for the critical path activity of stripping the bridge, to maintain overall programme.
This was successfully achieved and enabled the planned safe handover of the bridge to open to the public on time.
