Rail Remedial works, OLE Support Brackets, London

Programme

As part of the electrification project being undertaken by Network Rail, much of the infrastructure will require alteration to comply with regulations covering distances between structures and live equipment.

We were contracted to install new OLE support brackets to the existing road bridge (green lane bridge) as part of the ongoing Elizabeth line (Crossrail) enabling works across London.
This was carried out during line block possessions with a live load road bridge above and completed well within the scheduled period without use of any contingency shifts.

Working from rail MEWPS, busting out rivets on a “one out one in” basis using pneumatic hand-held rivet busting equipment, aligning the subsequent holes using bridge reaming tools. The brackets were “locally” modified to match the “Victorian era” hole pitching, bolted using 10.9 grade bolts, suitably torqued with load indicating washers.

All criteria were met, on time and performed safely.
