Harrow Road Parapet Repair
Sector: Specialist Highways
Main Contractor: FM Conway
Project: Harrow Road Hybrid Parapet Repairs
Works: Contract to remove and replace steel vehicle restraint parapet and concrete repairs
Duration: 2 months
TAG Construction Ltd were contracted to supply and replace approximately 140m of galvanized vehicle restraint parapet, including repairs to the concrete where existing cast-in ferrous metalwork had corroded, damaging surrounding areas. Existing steelwork was removed, the damaged concrete sections were broken out, shuttered and repaired using a C40 concrete incorporating new stainless holding down bolts. This included a detailed survey of existing steelwork lengths and the supply of all materials. Much of the work was carried out at height in conjunction with a rope access platform team. The project was split into two phases with a very tight programme along with additional concrete repairs to other sections of parapet.
