The construction of Network Rail’s £49 million Stockley Flyover is being constructed by Carillion, using RMD Kwikform’s comprehensive range of formwork and shoring solutions, and specialist travelling formwork system.
The flyover is being constructed to facilitate Crossrail and Heathrow Express services between London and Heathrow Airport, whilst allowing trains to Reading and beyond to pass through the junction unhindered.
Situated next to four active train lines, the project is split into three different types of construction. For the first, which is a rising section from ground level, a special U trough is being constructed using two travelling formwork systems. This will link the new rail line to a second raised section, which involves the use of formwork and shoring to cast 18 piers and crossheads, to support precast beam sections that make up the composite section of the flyover.
