Contractor : Kier
Location : Glasgow, Scotland
Working for Kier as the main contractor and with Network Rail as the client, Miller Fabrications were contracted to fabricate and install a 96m long DDA compliant ramp weighing over 55 tonnes.The Ramp was built in 8 sections, each measuring 12 meters. In order to reduce the number of ‘track possessions’ required to install the ramp, each section was fabricated to DDA compliant standards in our workshops before arriving onsite. To further reduce ‘track possession’ time certified lifting brackets were fabricated onto each section of the ramp allowing for quick and easy installation by crane onsite. The landing section of the ramp was transported to site under police escort. Installation of the ramp was achieved in only 3 ‘track possessions’ each lasting 8 hours.
