As part of the scheme, which runs for 15 miles, the Group fabricated a range of steel Single Track Cantilevers, Two Track Cantilevers, Portals and Anchor Portals in-house as well as four angle fabricated TTC bridges.

David Taylor, UK Sales at WEC Fabrication, said: £It has been a pleasure dealing with staff at all levels within the ABC organisation, showing professionalism and a desire to succeed.

£Having demonstrated our total capacity and capability within WEC Group, ensuring competitive and economical manufacture for the project, we look forward to assisting with any future project with ABC or other Network Rail projects.£
