National Level Crossing Risk Reduction Programme - Barnt Green Footbridge

  • Sector:Transport
  • Client:Network Rail (Kier Construction)
  • Location:Barnt Green Footbridge, Bromsgrove
  • Value:£220k

Barhale Construction Services Ltd were contracted by Network Rail (with Kier as the principal contractor) to fabricate and install a new double-span footbridge near Bromsgrove, North Worcestershire. The existing footbridge needed to be replaced with a new, higher structure so overhead lines can run underneath to power electric trains.

The project was part of a £100m Network Rail investment to electrify the lines between Barnt Green and Bromsgrove in the north of Worcestershire. The existing structure remained open for station pedestrians, whilst the project was being carried out.
