Project Overview

HS2 is building a new high speed railway to link people across Britain, with over 25 stations connecting 30 million people and is one of the most demanding and exciting transport mega-projects in Europe. This was a major scheme to demolish structures located alongside the River Brent, adjacent to the live mainline railway and close to occupied residential dwellings. The works included the lifting, dismantling, temporary works and demolition of 3 large container gantry cranes, with a combined weight of 678 tonnes, that straddled the live railway line and a neighbouring access rail track for goods removal.
