At Edwards, we believe that our highways, railways and networks are the spine of the UK economy.
Enabling the ongoing growth of the UK’s economy requires continual investment in our infrastructure. Edwards focuses on being fit-for-purpose in our design and cost-effective in our fabrication and installation services.
Key areas of expertise:
Bridges, gantries and signalling infrastructure
Structures and buildings
Edwards made and installed the Dundee harbour rail mounted extending bridge.
For the Peterhead Harbour Trust, Edwards manufactured and installed the deck of the rolling lift bridge and refurbished the mechanical elements of the lifting mechanism.
The Old Tweed Bridge was opened by Sir Walter Scott in 1832 and was the main link between Selkirk and Galashiels for 140 years. The bridge is used by pedestrian traffic and had fallen into a state of disrepair following the opening of the nearby A7 crossing of the Tweed River. Further to a full risk assessment being completed, Edwards fabricated temporary propping and an encapsulation structure underneath and around the bridge to protect the stonemasons (see case study and news article).
