Shore Hire, a leading provider of temporary works solutions, was approached by a construction company to provide a temporary bridge for their project. The construction work involved placing new culverts, which required the bridge to be installed to allow businesses to keep their entries open.
The main challenge was that the construction work had to be carried out at night to minimise disruptions to local business activities, meaning that the temporary bridge had to be constructed and installed in just one night shift.
Shore Hire’s team of experts got to work and quickly created a plan to meet the requirements of the project. They arranged for an additional large excavator to be available on-site to make the construction process as efficient as possible. They also designed and installed their Shore Hire Temporary Works, which provided the necessary support for the bridge to be safely installed.
To ensure the safety of the public, Shore Hire arranged for the handrails of the bridge to be painted yellow, making them visible to drivers using the bridge. This attention to detail helped to prevent accidents and ensure the smooth flow of traffic during the construction process.
The project was a great success, with the bridge being installed in one night shift, and local businesses able to remain open with minimal disruption. The innovative solutions provided by Shore Hire made the project possible, and the local paper even featured the story. The temporary bridge was also used in several other locations over a two-month period, allowing the customer to continue their work without interruption.
Overall, the success of the project demonstrated Shore Hire’s commitment to delivering innovative and effective temporary works solutions that meet the needs of its clients. The team’s expertise, attention to detail, and dedication to safety were instrumental in ensuring the project’s success.
