The Northern Hub

Manchester, United Kingdom

New, faster rail links for the North of England was the objective of the rail project Northern hub - this has now been achieved. The project now links the region's major cities, with Manchester as the main node.

Challenge:
One of the biggest challenges on this project are that some of the new railway bridges are right beside listed structures of historic importance.

Solution:
Doka was able to provide a custom-tailored formwork solution for the complex design of the viaduct piers. At the same time Doka speeded up work routines by delivering the pre-assembled formwork ready-to-use to site.
