Breach Bridge - Kent

Client: Network Rail

​Project Overview

 

  • Breach Bridge was an 1800mm wide KITEStep to replace an existing 900mm access approximately 13.5m in length.

  • It included an offset landing 3600x1800mm to facilitate the change of direction required for step access over a certain length. The KITEStep was considerably safer than the previous concrete stair, which was one continuous flight down to the track.

  • The KITEStep system was installed above the existing concrete staircase minimising the excavation required.

  • The KITEStep was fixed to the concrete steps on one side and fitted with root foundations into the bank on the other side.
