Incle Street, Paisley: Improvement works to railway bridge and redundant building

Incle Street, Paisley: Improvement works to railway bridge and redundant building

In January 2022, Network Rail will commence a £1.4m programme of work to repair and repaint the railway bridge on Incle Street, close to Paisley Gilmour Street station. During the project, we will also infill the redundant building next to the bridge.

Network Rail will invest £1.4m on carrying out essential steelwork repairs before removing the old paint and rust and then priming and re-painting the railway bridge (UB 160/019), as well as infilling the redundant building (UB A 160/018), on Incle Street, with lightweight material to support railway infrastructure.

We’ll undertake condition led masonry repairs, while installing ballast retention plates, low structure signage and painted chevrons.

In order to carry out the project safely and efficiently, the road under the bridge will have lane closures in place between 10 January 2022 and 16 April 2022.

Why?

We're carrying out this work to protect and extend the lifespan of the structures, as part of a wider, rolling programme of maintenance aimed at keeping the network safe and reliable.

When complete, the works carried out will mean the structures are stronger, meet current safety standards and the bridge will not require repainting for up to two decades.

What will change?

We’re investing £1.4m on carrying out essential steelwork repairs before removing the old paint and rust and then priming and re-painting the railway bridge at Incle Street.

As part of the project we'll infill the redundant building next to the railway, using lightweight material to support railway infrastructure.
