Detail

Scope of Works

Eskmeals Viaduct is an 18 span structure on the coastal section of the Carnforth Barrow and Carlisle Line in Cumbria. ICE were required to Grit-blast and Paint the structure and undertake a significant scope of steelwork repairs. We also undertook vegetation and masonry repair works. The structure was fully encapsulated in sections to facilitate the works.

Challenges

The site was SSSI and required ICS to manage several environmental and ecological issues. Working conditions were variable due to the coastal/estuarial location so safety of our operatives was paramount in our planning and execution of the works.
