Power Line Crossing – Glasgow

Platipus Anchors - Flag of UK

Project Overview

To protect the vehicles travelling along this section of the busy M73 motorway while essential maintenance and replacement works were carried out to the overhead power lines a scaffolding structure carrying a safety net was erected.


The scaffolding towers were erected in the field area beyond the hard shoulder of both carriageways. To provide support to prevent overturning anchors were installed and secured to the structures.
