Points of interest:
RRC worked with J Murphy & Sons on the prestigious River Chor Aqueduct project. Three sections of pre-fabricated FRP (fibre-reinforced polymer) sections, weighing up to 3.3 tonnes, were lifted into place. The crane accessed the rail via a difficult seven-metre RRAP and travelled to the remote site location. The track ‘cant’ was at a maximum of 150mm.
