Oxford – Aristotle footbridge
Client: Network Rail
Principal Contractor: Carillion (part of capacity improvement works)
Value of contract: £725,000 (whole OXD package)
Description of Works:
A Giken silent and vibration free piler worked in Super Crush mode with the assistance of a 50 tonne crawler crane and (for the final piles on the skinny end) a clamp crane for the slinging and pitching of AZ26 piles which varied in length between 7 and 9 metres. After augering into the earth and installing each pile, the Giken released its feet and “crawled” along the piles into position for the next one. Installation was to form a permanent retaining wall along the OXD lines North of Oxford Station as part of the Oxford Capacity Improvement Scheme.
