We are experienced in providing access for road bridges and have carried out work and installations on reservoirs and water treatment works. Crossway Scaffolding Group, Rail Division recently started work on a prestigious project at Manchester Victoria Station.
Crossway Scaffolding Group started work on the 10,000 sq m crash deck and working platform. The deck was commissioned to enable the existing Victorian roof structures to be demolished and replaced by a state of the art ETFE roof covering the station concourses and railway tracks. The crash deck will be erected and dismantled by a team over a period of 18 months, mainly during night shifts and possessions as the whole station will be operational during the works.
A total of 10,000 sq m of steel decking and more than 3,000 ﬁre retardant plywood sheet will be used to create the deck.
