Winchburgh Railway Bridge & EDR Projects Commence

We are delighted to announce that I & H Brown have secured two new contracts with longstanding client, Winchburgh Developments.

The first of which is the major Winchburgh Railway Bridge and Embankment Project which commenced in November following a long and involved tender process. This was followed by the tender win of the EDR (Eastern Distributor Road).   

The Railway Bridge contract will represent the first railway bridge project the company has ever delivered. It will be delivered under a NEC Option A contract with a programme of 47 weeks. We must install 14 RC bored piles either side of the railway to support the railway bridge abutments. We then construct the bridge abutments and install precast concrete bridge beams. We must excavate unsuitable lacustrine materials below the road embankment and import class 1 fill to form a 4m high road embankment before installing drainage, kerbing, surfacing, street lighting and fencing. Close coordination with Network Rail will be required throughout the works.  

The project having started in December, is progressing well. The major beam structures were delivered to the site on Thursday 2nd February, pictures of which are below.

The EDR Project involves the construction of a 450m section of road; a continuation of the Beatlie Road Junction road section I & H Brown built in 2021. The EDR project includes associated drainage, kerbing, surfacing, street lighting and fencing. We will form a junction tie in with main B9080 road. Project Duration is 26 weeks, and the project has been let under a NEC Option B contract.

These two new projects mark another major milestone for Winchburgh Developments in their continued delivery of the Winchburgh Masterplan. Our involvement stems back to 2019 having delivered a variety of works from remediation, development platforms, a marina to now a railway bridge.
