As part of this upgrade they are undertaking essential strengthening work and brickwork repairs on key bridges and viaducts between Kettering and Corby – and we are pleased to be able to provide access solutions for this job using a mix of system and tube and fitting scaffolding solutions.

An independent auditor brought in by Carillion Rail said it was “the best HAKI job he has seen, from the paperwork through to the build and eventual handover,” which we are all very pleased with, as that’s the sort of high standards we set at Lyndon – being the most respected scaffolding firm in the country.”
