EUROPE'S FIRST CABLE-STAYED RAILWAY BRIDGE

A brief description is given of a bridge under construction to carry a railway over the M25 motorway between Virginia Water and Chertsey. The whole structure, including abutments, is of concrete construction with two continuous 55 M skew spans comprised of solid pre-stressed concrete edge beams with a reinforced concrete deck. The stay cables supporting the deck are anchored to two towers, rising 26 M above the track, which are directly above the mid-support piers. The construction methods are outlined.
