About HS2 Wendover Dean Viaduct
Located south of the village of Wendover in Buckinghamshire, the 450m-long Wendover Dean viaduct will be the first major railway bridge in the UK to be built with a ‘double composite’ structure, using significantly less carbon-intensive concrete and steel in comparison to a more traditional design. Ground engineers have started work on the pioneering viaduct, with an expert team sinking the first of more than 50 concrete piles that will form the foundations. On top of each group of piles, a concrete pile cap will support the pier which will in turn support the weight of the bridge structure above.
Attendees will be able to view the viaduct from a PPE-free viewing platform and take in the scale of the structure. They will be accompanied by EKFB engineers who will explain the work sequence and show an artists impression of the finished viaduct.
