Ouse Valley Viaduct

Euston Station Scaffolding

Alltask is providing ongoing support for our client, Octavius Infrastructure Ltd as part of their brick and stonework repair and restoration scheme to arches 3-8 of the Grade II listed Ouse Valley Viaduct, in Haywards Heath, West Sussex in a bid to revive the historic viaduct back to its former glory.

The Ouse Valley Viaduct, located between Haywards Heath and Balcombe, is an iconic structure comprising 37 identical arches. It stands at an impressive height of 29 meters and stretches 450 meters in total.

Originally constructed as part of the London to Brighton railway line between July 1838 and July 1841, it was designed to carry trains over the River Ouse. It stands as a testament to the engineering marvels of its time, using an estimated 11 million bricks in its construction.

Restoring such a historic and architecturally significant structure poses numerous challenges, including:

Ensuring that the restoration work preserves the viaduct’s heritage value and complies with Grade II listing requirements.

Access and Safety
Providing safe and efficient access for workers to carry out extensive brick and stonework repairs across arches 3-8 while minimising disruptions to train services.

Structural Integrity
Ensuring that the viaduct remains structurally sound during the repair process, considering its age and historical significance.

Alltask has expertise in scaffolding and temporary access solutions and plays a vital role in overcoming any challenges.
