Manchester Galvanizing was called upon by Harrisons Engineering to galvanize 25 tonnes of steel used to strengthen and refurbish the Hull and Barnsley railway bridge. The upgrade was commissioned by Network Rail and carried out by main contractor Story Contracting.

Russell Pinder, Project Manager at Harrisons Engineering, explained: “Using galvanizing as part of the project was really important because it requires no ongoing maintenance and provides longer term protection. Due to the time constraints of such a detailed project, galvanizing was the natural choice, as painting would have been impossible to complete in time without undertaking major reworks to the protective coatings.”
