Formwork: Haramain High-Speed Rail
Rail network is part of the Haramain High-Speed Rail project
The new rail network is part of the dual-track 450km Haramain High-Speed Rail project, which will connect the four cities of Makkah, Jeddah, Rabigh and Madinah. Harsco Baroom Limited is engaged in work on six bridges.
China Railway (CR 18g) is the major contractor on the high-speed rail project. Harsco Baroom is working in conjunction with China Railway at present on Bridge HJ5, which is the construction site shown in the images.
The scope of works for Harsco Baroom is to design and supply materials. The duration of the work is three months, from April to June 2012.
“The particular challenge of this project is to deliver a bridge with a sharp curve, which is a complex structure, as well as to design the work and supply the material, all within a limited timescale,” comments Harsco Baroom sales manager Arif Khan.
The products from Harsco Baroom used in Bridge HJ5 are Cuplok and DU-AL aluminium beams for sub-structure support and Mark II and DU-AL aluminum beams for slab-deck framing.
