Working closely with the designer allowed Story to liaise directly with Tarmac to design a solution that utilised the material quarried on site to construct the new embankment, backfill material to the loading ramp and cladding to the footbridge. This hugely assisted both the cost of the scheme but also the sheer logistics in avoiding importing thousands of tonnes of material.
There were some key constraints to overcome during the project but Story were able to resolve these issues by working with Bowland Ecology and the National Parks planning team. This allowed us to continue hitting milestones throughout the programme and deliver the project to a high standard.
A refurbished lattice footbridge was also installed onto stone-faced abutments and now provides an excellent vantage point from which to view the sidings.
