We’ve recently installed an additional safety aspect to one of our towpath walkway diversion pontoons. The original installation has been diverting pedestrians around a worksite as part of the M4 improvements for a number of months, but with the changing nature and location of the works, extra precautions were required to ensure the safety of the general public. A scaffold roof has been erected using our specially adapted pins with uprights positioned on the outer edge of the Combisafe edge protection. This frame supports a double layered roof and mesh sides which also protects users from falling debris.
This installation is another example of our innovative use of pontoon in building and renovating the UK’s infrastructure.
