Ex­tra pro­tec­tion at Thur­low Park

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

One of the most heav­ily struck rail­way bridges in Lon­don, Thur­low Park Road Bridge, has re­ceived ad­di­tional pro­tec­tion to try to re­duce the num­ber of road ve­hi­cles col­lid­ing with it.

The struc­ture is lo­cated just off the end of the plat­forms at Tulse Hill, which makes it im­pos­si­ble to raise the bridge. A new de­tec­tor sys­tem iden­ti­fies over­height ve­hi­cles and warns them to turn back, while ad­di­tional sig­nage and steel beams have been fit­ted.

En­gi­neers are also based at the bridge dur­ing peak hours to in­spect it should they be re­quired.
