Story Contracting’s Rail Scotland team have successfully relocated a historic footbridge to the Caledonian Heritage Railway at Bridge of Dun station. Working to a tight 4-week programme, Robert McCallum and his site team completed the works safely, within budget and a day ahead of programme allowing the heritage railway to open to the public on time for their Easter timetable. Well done to all involved, fantastic effort!
“This past week saw the end of a long saga relating to finding a home for an old footbridge. It was agreed that the best solution to this would be to find a heritage railway location. To cut a long story short there were endless complications, and at one stage no one wanted it at all. Finally, the heritage railway at Bridge of Dun near Brechin agreed to accept the structure onto their site and we had a solution. Although only a small project, the helpful and proactive attitude of John MacArthur and his team at Story in Uddingston exemplifies everything that is good about our RCDP framework and the real collaborative ethos we have. Thanks, from Network Rail to all involved”.

“We are delighted with how it looks, and the board are very impressed with how smoothly the project went. Milestones were met, everything was completed on time with a minimum of fuss from your team, there was excellent communication throughout and a very tidy worksite with no mess whatsoever and the project was delivered as specified (in fact in excess of specification). Rab ran a well-organised team who clearly respected him and nothing was too much trouble, and I would have no hesitation having the same team work for us again.”
