Woodmansterne Footbridge

Dyer & Butler, Network Rail

Project Type:
Bridge Deck Replacement

In July 2009 Woodmansterne Footbridge suffered an impact to the upside girder. Crouch Waterfall was employed by Dyer & Butler to carry out an inspection of the remaining structure, report on the damage and confirm the suitability or otherwise of utilising the remaining structure with the inclusion of a new track span.

As a result of an inspection and discussions with Dyer & Butler and Network Rail it was recommended that the whole bridge deck was to be replaced.

Crouch Waterfall was then novated for the design and detailing of a single span steel footbridge and RC bank seats, production of Forms A & B along with construction drawings, schedules and designers risk assessments as recommended within the original report.

Crouch Waterfall was also novated for the design of the temporary works and production of Form C for a temporary scaffold footbridge and crane mat.

The bridge span is fabricated in steel as this providing the best value for money.
