Kaymac offer many years of experience in delivering many different scour protection solutions for a variety of structures and range of clients.
Many of our scour protection solutions have historically been to bridge structures, their piers and abutments, also river embankments and tidal estuaries, protecting against the aggressive movement of inland waterways, tidal waters and propeller wash.
Please refer to our project case studies, each depicts a scour protection solution that Kaymac have delivered in recent years in many locations throughout the UK.
The Dutton Viaduct was built by Joseph Locke from designs by George Stephenson, to carry the Grand Union Railway over the valley of the River Weaver in Cheshire, and was completed on the 9th December 1836. Kaymac Marine and Civil Engineering Ltd were commissioned by Birse Rail to carry out scour protection works to the two spans of the viaduct which now carry the railway over the Weaver Navigation. Previous inspections had revealed river bed scour, undercutting of a pier base and widespread open jointing both above and below the waterline.
