Project: Bedale Bypass
Details: The bypass is designed to ease congestion by reducing traffic through the villages of Bedale, Leeming Bar and Aiskew by half.
The construction of Bedale Bypass involved heavy plant crossing the Wensleydale Railwai. In Order to facilitate that plant movement, a number of heavy duty crossing points had to be installed over the tracks and Will Bros commissioned specialist contractor Premier Rail Services to cary out the work.
The installation happened at the beginning of the project, enabling the essential heavy plant and equipment to cross the running railway.
Premier Rail was established in 1997 and has expanded to become the largest installer and supplier of specialist access equpment on the UK railway infrastructure. The company work directly for Network Rail and for the majority of ther other top-tier railway contractors.
