Congratulations to Steve Wilkins and Hendrie Barbour of WYG for being awarded the prize of “Best Paper on Innovation in the Railway Industry” at the highly regarded Railway Engineering 2002 Conference.
The paper, co written with Giles Waley of Edmund Nuttall Ltd, outlined the design of strengthening work at Auchtertyre Viaduct, near Crianlarich. The works included the use of external post tensioned tendons to increase the load carrying capacity of the bridge.
This was the 5th International Railway Engineering Conference and Exhibition held at the Commonwealth Institute in London. Categories covered include maintenance and renewal of permanent way, points, power and signaling, structure and earthworks.
