Money-saving project to avoid bridge reconstruction wins industry award
Featured story

An RSSB project which has the potential to save the rail industry millions of pounds by avoiding the need to rebuild bridges across the network won an AECOM UK & Ireland Excellence Award last week.

Electrification schemes have traditionally faced the challenge of making more space under bridges to let overhead electric lines pass underneath, usually requiring expensive reconstruction works.

AECOM's solution looks at new track bed products and construction techniques which have recently been introduced to the market, and examines whether they can reduce the depth of track bed to create more space.

The AECOM award for Delivering Technical Excellence was awarded to this project, with judges saying it showed AECOM is helping RSSB to push the industry forward and address a specific challenge associated with electrification programmes.
