Alpha Rail has been involved in the supply and installation of pedestrian guardrail on a £1.4 million road-widening scheme on Brixham Rd, Paignton, Devon.
Alpha Rail were appointed by Civil Engineering Contractors, Dyer and Butler Limited, who were working on behalf of Torbay Council on the widening of the Yannon Farm to Long Road section to create two lanes in each direction.
The existing carriageway was widened, resurfaced and improvements made to footways and cycle ways which involved the building of a reinforced concrete and brick retaining wall, and the installation of pedestrian barriers to guide users to appropriate routes and crossings.
In total, Alpha Rail has supplied and installed 185 linear metres of standard pedestrian guardrail. In some sections, a variety of road gradients meant that the pedestrian guardrail had to be installed on the top of brick walls, each rising in height by 200mm every two metres.
Our site surveyor conducted a full review of the site and used a combination of total station measuring instrument and tape measure to calculate the distance and obtain precise rake and radius measurements.
Commenting, Dyer and Butler Senior Quantity Surveyor, William Ayres, said, “We were very pleased with the service that Alpha Rail has provided. We were delighted when we found out that Alpha Rail could also install the pedestrian guardrails as this meant I only had to deal with one contractor. Their installation service was very quick and we will definitely use Alpha Rail on future projects.”
