Central Tunnel Liverpool

Crossway's specialist rail knowledge required for complex scaffolding platform required to sit above live rail track.

The project in Central Tunnel, Liverpool was to install a structural concrete lining to an existing brick arch tunnel roof.

The work needed to be completed above a live rail track so that rail services could be maintained throughout the period of works.

Crossway's solution was to erect a platform for the full length of the tunnel, 60M long, built above the track during weekends, and 24 x 3 hour possessions. Beams were also installed using fast curing resin anchors in sandstone sidewalls.
