New footbridge to step into limelight at Railtex/Infrarail


Engineering business Taziker will officially launch its new Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) ‘Legacy Footbridge’ solution at Railtex/Infrarail.

Matt Greenhalgh, Taziker.

The business says it will reduce cost and provide access for all, with minimal installation time designed to cut passenger disruption.

Director of technical services and special projects at Taziker, Matt Greenhalgh, said: “Taziker’s solution for an FRP footbridge gives the industry a cost effective, quick to install, sustainable option to make the railway infrastructure a safer environment.

“After reading about the number of accidents occurring on rail pedestrian crossings and the main blocker to prevent these occurrences was the cost of footbridge replacements, I was inspired to develop a cost effective FRP footbridge solution that could replace pedestrian crossings and improve safety.  The result of our research and development is the Legacy Footbridge.”
