    GWML Electrification – Work to the Intersection Bridges at Cardiff Central (Philip Holbourn, Holbourn Engineering)

     

    Philip will describe the challenging works at Cardiff Intersection bridges, a set of rail over rail bridges with a canal underneath. Initially designed as slab track, Philip will describe the complex design for the Rheda 2000 slab with the Pandrol VIPA-DFC system, a first of type in the UK, also the transition arrangements to and from ballasted track which proposed the use of the V-TRAS system. Due to the many significant challenges encountered with the project, this proposed slab installation was cancelled. Instead, an altogether more challenging and innovative design is being pursued, resulting in reduced electrical clearances and constrained track works and maintenance; Philip will outline the current status of this and the challenges it presents.
