We are proud to feature the renovation work completed by BS Steels earlier in 2015 on the pedestrian footbridge at Wareham Station.

It is another example of BS Steels’ capabilities within the railway sector, whilst the handrails, with LED lighting enclosed within stainless steel tubing, could make a stylish feature on any number of architectural steelwork projects.


The task to renovate and maintain the footbridge required BS Steels to strip the bridge back to its original structure. Any part of the structure which had delaminated or was damaged in any way was then cut out and replaced. The railway underneath had to remain operational throughout the period, requiring the bridge to be scaffolded and totally encapsulated, with relatively constricted working space.

A feature of the finished bridge is the sleek stainless steel handrail. Sealed within the stainless steel tube is LED lighting. This is a capability that can be transferred to any project requiring stylish handrails with built-in illumination: the location, number of lights and angle of light can all be adjusted to provide the desired arc of light.
