Route One – All in One!

April 11, 2016


Route One Rail recently completed a package of works to the new Cow Lane Bridge at Sharlston, Wakefield for AMCO on behalf of Network Rail.

Works to the newly installed bridge deck included preparation of the concrete prior to receiving Stirling Lloyd Eliminator Waterproofing system with Tack Coat 2.

Stirling Lloyd loose laid Hytec Waterproofing with a Geo 1000 protective geotextile was installed as ‘drapes’ to the deck ends.

Transverse Buried Sentinel Joints were also installed as part of the package prior to resurfacing. Route One Rail then resurfaced the deck with a binder and surface course.

Ashleigh Wilson, Sales Manager at Route One Rail says: “This is yet another innovative example of Route One delivering a seamless package of services on a challenging project with tight deadlines.”
