VolkerHighways, and fellow business unit VolkerFitzpatrick’s structures team, from within their Rail and Infrastructure division, recently removed and replaced a life expired pedestrian footbridge over the London Victoria to Ramsgate railway cutting, in Gillingham, Kent.
The new footbridge is longer and wider than the previous structure, giving pedestrians more space to pass.
The works were part of VolkerHighways’ five-year highways infrastructure framework with Medway Council, and highlights the benefits of working collaboratively with the wider VolkerWessels UK group, combining their knowledge and providing a seamless end-to-end solution.
The project was completed a week ahead of programme, with significant savings and minimal disruption to residents.
