Project Description

 The Stockley Interchange in west London is an important part of the future Crossrail network and is needed to increase capacity between London and Heathrow.  The Stockley Viaduct is a new flyover built over the existing main lines. VLS Heavy Lifting was appointed to launch the 1,475t curved steel rail bridge by 100m. 

Installation over the live rail lines required a very tight time schedule and high safety standards, including the possibility of retracting the bridge at any time during the launching operation if a dangerous situation arose.
