Port Talbot Bridge // Case Study

New road bridge over main line rail track

Kwik-Klik has installed a secure hoarding on a major new road bridge in Port Talbot in South Wales.

Port Talbot's £107 million dual carriageway Harbour Way project is due for completion in September 2013. The peripheral distributor road will provide a 4.8km link between Junction 38 of the M4 and Port Talbot docks.

Kwik-Klik installed a 30 linear metre hoarding on the elevated section of the new road at Margam, where the road crosses the main railway line.

The high strength scaffold support for the hoarding is a bespoke configuration to take into account high wind loading factors on the bridge which runs over a live rail track.

The bridge work has been organised in two halves, so the hoarding is only on one side of the bridge. The road lanes nearest to the hoarding will be built first, then the hoarding will be moved to the other side of the bridge and work on the other side of the new dual carriageway will begin.

The hoarding will be on site for at least a year and the new road is due to open in September 2013.
