Dean Forest Railway
An interesting job and a fantastic picture of a job that we were involved with…
Dean Forest Railway, a heritage railway located in Lydney in Gloucestershire has recently secured funding to restore a 125 year old, Grade II Listed Footbridge. Bridge specialist Mabey, which manufactures and exports modular bridging around the world from its nearby factory in Lydney, was appointed to undertake the vital repair and restoration work.
To begin the restoration work, the bridge had to be lifted out and placed on to rail transporters to take it away from site. Lifting Gear and Safety Ltd, specialists in hiring and selling Lifting, Marine and Safety equipment, supplied the equipment to lift the bridge out of place.
