Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for 40 Years


Wickham Market Bridge, Suffolk

Platipus Anchors - Flag of UK

Project Overview

As part of a refurbishment project, the bridge carrying the B1078 over the railway line at Wickham Market Station had its deck replaced. A prop force was needed to stabilise the abutments in the temporary condition while the old deck was demolished and a degree of stabilisation was required for the abutments once the new deck was in position, whilst causing minimal disruption to the running of the railway.

Project Solution

Stealth S8 anchors were utilised, as their small profile meant that they could be installed using hand held equipment prior to demolition of the deck. IP1inverted patress plates were used to transfer the load to the abutments and provide an aesthetically pleasing fi nish.
