GRP Structural Profiles & Grating Supplied To Motorway Improvements Project

Transport Scotland are working to improve the motorway network in Central Scotland, upgrading the roads to reduce congestion and increase journey time reliability.

The principle contractor needed to significantly reduce the overall weight of a pedestrian walkway on the M8 Motorway Improvements Project. 

FibreGRATING was specified as the ideal alternative to steel Grating because of its lightweight, long lasting & durable characteristics. The newly installed GRP walkway allowed for operatives to access critical sections of the adjacent railway line safely.

Steel grating is often used for the construction of walkways, however the installation benefits of using Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) meant FibreGRATING was the perfect solution for the job.
