National Railway Heritage Award
Work on the Ouseburn Viaduct by Network Rail and Carillion Rail won a National Railway Heritage Award. The work was needed to strengthen the bridge, which is used by trains on the East Coast main line; a 20 mph speed limit had been imposed for safety reasons. The work, costing £12.5m began in 2010. Modern steelwork was added to strengthen the viaduct, without detracting from its appearance, and the 19th century wrought iron work was restored. The steep-sided valley made the work challenging and required the largest self-supporting scaffold in the country at the time, 30m above ground. The award was announced in December 2013 and a presentation ceremony took place on the 11th of April 2014, when John Ellis, Chairman of the National Railway Heritage Awards, unveiled a plaque on the viaduct.
