Short notice mobilisation
The Hook of Holland in the Netherlands is close to the city of Rotterdam where 80% of people own a bicycle and over half a million cycle trips are made every day. In an area where cycling infrastructure is always a priority, a new wooden canopy needed to be installed over a bicycle bridge that passed over railway tracks.
ALE was asked to mobilise quickly so only had a few days’ notice to prepare for the operation. There was a closure in place for the railway line, which meant ALE needed to meet a tight deadline to avoid any delays that would impact the railway network. ALE’s experience on civil and rail projects enabled them to swiftly assemble a plan of action.
