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