Client: Network Rail | On behalf of Scotland’s Railway
One of our teams at Camscaff Scaffolding have been erecting this 11 span viaduct from 3rd April 2023 on a project that will run to completion in February 2024.
Camps Viaduct, seen in the following photographs, is around 160 years old with towers that rise 35m above the River Clyde. The impressive structure sits between Ferniegair and Motherwell and serves passengers travelling between Glasgow and Motherwell.
The project that Camscaff are supporting will allow our client to carry out essential repairs to extend the lifespan of the structure as part of Network Rail’s commitment to running a safe and reliable railway.

1/ 96 tonne of tube
2/ 9,000 fittings
3/750m of alloy beams
