Chris Sedgeman Scaffolding Ltd supplied and installed over 35 tons of scaffolding to help rebuild damaged rail infrastructure and sea-defences.

During the first half of February parts of Britain were hit by a huge atlantic storms which battered coastlines and overwhelmed sea-defences.  In Dawlish, Devon the storms destroyed a section of the sea wall and left the railway to Cornwall suspended in mid-air.

Chris Sedgeman Scaffolding was contacted on Thursday 6th February following the huge atlantic storm which resulted in a large section of railway line in Dawlish being washed away and houses being unstable.

Staff at Chris Sedgeman Scaffolding worked all over the weekend preparing for commencing works which they started on the following Monday and worked continually around the clock to Thursday 13th  before the next storm hit.

Lynn Way Company Secretary & Financial Manager for Chris Sedgeman Scaffolding Ltd said:

“We commenced works on the 70m long cable bridge with two access staircases and used 35 tons of scaffolding in the first few days.

We have subsequently erected 75m of edge protection along the sea wall;   access walkways to the houses; sea wall access scaffold and a temporary shelter”.

Works are still on-going.
