NR replaces Clyde Viaduct bearings
Network Rail is replacing bearings under the deck of the three-span Clyde Viaduct, near Uddingston on the West Coast Main Line, in a £1.6 million project.
The structure is more than 40 years old, and the existing bearings have started to deteriorate. Four bearings on the east abutment and eight on the west pier need to be replaced.
Modern design means they are smaller than those they are replacing, and each will be set on pre-cast slabs.
The first bearing set was due to be removed on September 1 (as this isue of RAIL went to press), with work continuing into December.
No disruptions to services are expected.
