Our reputation for design and technical excellence is represented in landmark projects such as Queensferry Crossing in Scotland and the Fehmarnbelt road/rail tunnel in Denmark. Our multidisciplinary transport team works across aviation, bridges, ports, rail, roads and tunnels, you can find out more here.

Retro-fitting a prestress post-tensioning system

Phase 2 strengthening of the Hammersmith Flyover, is a phenomenally complex £100m programme including innovative engineering solutions to replace the post-tensioning system, which has been deteriorating due to significant corrosion. By restoring the capacity of the bridge, which carries 70,000 vehicles per day, the project has enabled the structure to stay in service for many years to come. The project was completed in 2015 within a tight time constraint and with minimal impact on the travelling public. More >

Launching a road bridge over operational rail lines

The newly constructed £10 million Tennison Road Bridge replaced a smaller 90 year old bridge, and is the largest bridge replacement over the rail network in the UK’s South East region in a decade. The project employed a clever combination of technology and engineering expertise to keep the line open during the replacement operation. It demonstrated that it is possible to keep trains running and passengers travelling whilst a new bridge is being launched into position over the tracks. More >

Designing the largest bridge project in Northern Europe

The 2.7 km road bridge linking Edinburgh with the county of Fife is the largest bridge project in Northern Europe. The captivating multi-spanned, three tower cable-stayed structure will replace the existing Forth Road Bridge and become the longest of its kind. The overlapping stay cables represent a technical design innovation that improves the stability and resiliency of the bridge. When completed in 2016, the three towers will rise 207m above sea level.

Delivering ambitious aviation projects

Pulkovo International Airport is one of the largest airports in Russia and serves St Petersburg with a landmark terminal and surrounding airport ‘city’. This 1 billion euro public private partnership was the first of its kind in Russian aviation history. In terms of energy efficiency, Pulkovo airport rivals the best airport terminals across Europe. A bespoke BREEAM assessment tool was developed to ensure that an inherent sustainable design ethos was applied to the project. More >

Building complex road schemes

The South Devon Link Road Project was one of the biggest construction projects and one of the most complex highways schemes in the South West. Involving many partners and engineering challenges, the project has received awards for considerate practices that show respect to the community and the environment. This a strategic road is of upmost regional importance and, after more than 50 years in the planning, the improved road scheme includes 5.5km of dual carriageway costing £110m. More >

Improving critical rail infrastructure

Bermondsey Dive Under is a key component of the final stage of the Thameslink project to rebuild London Bridge station. It is a new section of railway track and infrastructure that allows Thameslink lines to cross the Kent lines unimpeded on the eastern approach to London Bridge. The existing railway formation at the Bermondsey site comprises 11 tracks on elevated Victorian masonry arch viaduct structures. The project scope also includes crucial strengthening of numerous metallic bridges. More >

Challenging standards with the world's longest road and rail tunnel

The Fehmarn Belt Tunnel project is one of the world's longest and deepest seabed tunnels with pioneering longitudinal ventilation system and state-of-the-art safety features. It is one of the most innovative and progressive infrastructure projects in the world, and sets new standards for the integration of road and rail traffic into the European rail system. The fixed immersed tunnel link between Denmark and Germany, will be more than 18 km long and carry a four-lane motorway alongside a twin track-electrified railway. More >

Engineering a unique boat manufacturing facility

The opening of the lifeboat construction and re-fit centre at the RNLI headquarters in Poole, UK, was the culmination of three years of dedicated work by the Ramboll project team. We provided all engineering services for the ‘RNLI Conventina’ scheme, which involved replacing quay walls and raising site levels to future proof the site against flooding. This was followed by the construction of two manufacturing buildings. More >
