UB 090/158 Edengrove is a single span underbridge on the East Coast North Line between Cupar Station and Leuchars Station. The bridge had failed it’s structural assessment governed by the capacity of the wrought iron rail bearers.
MHB Consultants were commissioned by AMCO to carry out the GRIP 4 and 5 design for the superstructure strengthening, condition led repairs, timber deck replacement and repainting.
During a disruptive possession of the line, 3 new steel UC section were installed between the existing rail bearers and a new transverse spanning hardwood deck installed. The existing cast iron parapet were removed and replaced with new steel parapets to meet working at height regulations.
