Pulpit Rock Bridge
Loch Lomond, Scotland
Client: Mc Loughlin & Harvey Ltd.
Services Provided: C&S Engineering Services
Project Duration: 2012 – 2015
The road improvement scheme at Pulpit Rock on the eastern site of Loch Lomond required a new bridge, 165m long and following a tight “S” curve in the roadway. The site was an environmentally sensitive area and one of the exceptional natural beauty; requiring a sensitive design solution which was economically viable to construct in the difficult terrain.
PUNCH Consulting Engineers were appointed as independent structural consultants and the service began with a review of the emerging design proposals in the pre-tender stage, with formal sign-off on the final proposal included in the bid to Transport Scotland.
On award of the Contract to McLoughlin & Harvey Ltd., we them proceeded to carry out a fully independent design of the bridge in compliance to Eurocodes and UK annexes to meet the requirements for a Category 3 check to the DMRB.
