Barrow Rail Bridge


Barrow Rail Bridge, Ireland

This Victorian Swing Bridge carrying an 1800''s railway 1¼ mile across three shipping channels was suffering from the advances of modern shipping. The Bridge was designed at the turn of the 20th Century and was not built to accommodate the large cargo carrying vessels, which today pass between its cast iron steel portals. Our solution was based around an energy-absorbing Fender mounted on the bridges support piles. The frontal face consisted of 23 No. hinged panels that would be secured to Electrometric Rubber Elements, they in turn were secured to horizontal beams that were welded to the piles, tying the system together and providing extra strength and support to the Fender.
