Cycleway Case Study

Working for a leading UK charity, PBF was employed to clear 7km of a disused railway line to enable it to be repurposed into a cycle and bridal way. The work site was challenging due to the linear nature with limited access points and the presence of existing bridges, embankments and steep slopes. An additional risk was also posed by members of the public using the route as an unofficial path.

Works were completed using mini-tree shear and mulching head, powered hand tools and tracked chippers. The site team worked progressively along the route between the designated access points working to bespoke RAMS written to meet the client and local councils site and ecological constraints. Work was completed without incident, allowing the client to proceed with the construction work to create the cycleway.
