Medway viaduct main contractor Miller/Dumez/ Beton & Monierbau is pushing on with construction of the vital Channel Tunnel Rail Link crossing. The 30m high concrete piers with their 13m deep 'hammerheads', which will carry the main 152m concrete balanced cantilever span, are nearing completion.
Push-launching of the concrete box girder approach spans is also well advanced. By the end of last week some 33% of the eastern approach viaduct had been completed, while the western viaduct had reached the 63% mark. Completion is scheduled for 1 December.
