Strengthening and bridge repairs have recently been completed to the footbridge at Cowdenbeath Station in Fife. The works involved underpinning of the existing bridge foundations whilst keeping the bridge in service.
The bridge foundations had been affected by subsidence in the past and the solution involved temporary propping, installation of mini-piled foundations and new support columns which were designed to match the existing cast iron structure. Strengthening of the bridge deck and painting / resurfacing was also included in the project.
MHB carried out all permanent and temporary works designs on behalf of AMCO.
