Project Summary

VEDA devised a repair solution for an underperforming rail track bridge that avoided the need for closure of the road running underneath.

Cobham Road bridge, located between Leatherhead and Brookham stations in Surrey, was showing signs of fatigue due to shear and web/flange failure. Because the defect rendered the bridge’s load capacity below standard, Network Rail had put train speed restrictions in place until the work could be completed. This was negatively impacting train operations across the area.
