FP McCann has been appointed as the Main Contractor for Closure of User Worked Crossing XL122 to XL126 scheme
Title: Closure of User Worked Crossing XL122 to XL126
Location: Ballybrakes Road, Ballymoney
Description: This project is part of the overall strategy by Translink to improve safety at User Worked Crossings throughout the NIR network.
The project involves construction of a lane and associated works to close five User Worked Crossings (XL122 to XL126) on the Belfast to Derry~Londonderry Line near Ballymoney. The lane will include a single-span prestressed concrete integral overbridge over the railway. The lane and overbridge will allow the landowners and NI Water to access their lands/property without the need for the User Worked Crossings
The bridge will comprise a precast prestressed concrete beam and slab deck, supported on abutments comprising an in-situ reinforced concrete capping beam, sleeved columns and a spread footing. Reinforced earth walls will also be provided at each abutment to retain the proposed lane embankments. The project will include all other associated works, including but not limited to;
- Site clearance,
- Closing of the User Worked Crossings and
- All required temporary works.
