Stapleton Viaduct, Bristol

Back to Case Studies

 

The replacement of the Stapleton Road viaduct was a crucial part of a project intending to double the number of lines between Bristol Temple Meads and Filton Abbey Wood station. the demolition and replacement of this viaduct will play its part in enabling more frequent and reliable services to operate in the area, delivering a better railway for Bristol and beyond.

The historical Stapleton Road Viaduct in Bristol built in the 1880’s has been unused since 1984. This bridge was the last of its kind in the country, and was now unfortunately at the end of its working life.

S Evans took great pleasure in being awarded this demolition and site clearance project from Taylor Woodrow & Vinci who are working closely with Network rail. Over a 2 week timeline, we used various demolition specific machinery ranging from 7 to 50 tonne machines working in tandem to bring down the large structure in a safe and economical manner.

Working day and night in a busy residential area to remove well over 100 tonnes of steel, brick, concrete, and contaminated timber. Our experienced and long-standing team of well-trained operatives were able to complete both the bridge demolition and site clearance ahead of schedule and in a safe and professional manner. Resulting in a very satisfied client.
