Viaduct Drogheda

Client: Irish Rail

Project: Boyne Viaduct Drogheda

Date: 2014


The 170m long bridge in Drogheda Co. Louth was constructed in 1855 and required major structural repair works. This was a highly technical project involving the erection of a 170m long suspended access platform, to the underside of the bridge.

We then provided a fully boarded access scaffold to the outside elevations cantilevered off alloy beams, providing safe access to all three spans and to both sides of the bridge.

A tubular temporary roofing structure was then erected, to provide the framework for shrink wrapping and complete containment of the structure. This project highlights our key attributes and reinforces us as the contractor of choice for technical and safety critical access solutions.
