Originally constructed in 1856, Arnside viaduct is a 51 span structure carrying the Carnforth and Whitehaven line over the estuary of the River Kent. The structure has suffered deterioration over the years, resulting in the bridge’s load capacity being reduced and a speed restriction being enforced. Network Rail will be working with May Gurney to replace the entire deck of the viaduct to return the structure to it’s former condition, reinstate full line speed, meaning less major maintenance in future, improving journey times for both passengers and freight users.
Location: Arnside, Cumbria, United Kingdom
