GDL Piling has completed piling for a new bridge over the railway in Stirling, Scotland.
Over 16 days GDL Piling drove 88 continuous flight auger (CFA) piles with a 600mm diameter to depths of 28.5m while ensuring the railway remained operational.
Two teams worked in tandem on both the west and east abutments adjacent to the railway line between Glasgow/Edinburgh and Stirling.
GDL Piling operations director Stuart Cain said: “CFA technology offers the ideal solution for projects in urban locations because it eliminates vibration and disturbance to adjacent structures. It also reduces noise emissions, and this made it the most appropriate and efficient approach to offer the best outcomes for the Kerse Road railway bridge project.
“By using our CFA rigs, we can offer the best and most cost-effective solution for our clients’ projects across the UK. The success of the Kerse Road railway bridge project in Stirling relied on our team being able to provide a fast, efficient and safe delivery of our service while ensuring the railway line could remain open and operational.
“Our knowledge and expertise, as well as our experienced site team and on-board technology, means that we can monitor quality and performance real-time.”
