Fox Covert Footbridge

Fox Covert Footbridge



Market Sector: Rail

Client: Network Rail

Engineer: Amey

Main Contractor: Carillion

The footbridge which crosses the busy East Coast Main line Nr Peterborough, was opened mid-July following years of campaigning from local councilors and residents to improve safety at the crossing.

The crossing usage averages 200 plus school children pedestrians or cyclists per day across a 60mph main passenger line with 26 trains passing through this point.

Bourne was involved in the design stage allowing early collaboration from the outset with the client and Network Rail. The completed 240 meters of ramps, stairs and bridge section were fitted out with lighting electrics, handrails, GRP treads and paint work to ensure a “right first time” result before being placed by crane.
