REIDsteel’s erection supervisor Jimmy Sloane has just returned from Mauritius where he successfully supervised JTEC’s installation of a REIDsteel bridge. The bridge replaced an old steel railway bridge that had been corroding since 1902 and had fallen into a bad state of repair.
We didn’t see a dodo bird, but we did notice that L’Escalier is twinned with Spelthorne in Surrey!
This new bridge at Sourdine was built to eliminate a narrow and dangerous roadway into the gulley, used heavily by large bulky sugar harvest vehicles and bagasse transport, as well as by the general public. The bridge was funded in part by the sugar company and in part by the state.

Today, its people are looking to the future – The UK is helping by providing aid from the Department for International Development (DFID) and working with IMC Worldwide to support the Nepalese people in gaining reliable infrastructure.
The work is coordinated by Tim Stiff, of ICMW, acting as Team Leader for the Rural Access Programme, RAP2, and reporting back to the British government.
The only way for the country to advance and eliminate rural poverty is to build roads and bridges. Nepal’s total road network and density are low and only 43% of the population has access to all-weather […]

The nation took great pride in the success of 2012 Olympic Games, and REIDsteel were no different.
With fear before the games commenced that the huge crowds would draw a great terrorist threat to both the capital and the cities and towns throughout the UK holding events, it was imperative that security was top priority and that our nation was protected from any potential disasters.
Extensive testing has been carried out and gates have been approved and tested to BSI PAS 68.
The systems were originally designed for military use but this low cost system which does not require any foundation works has been deployed around airports, sporting events energy facilities and commercial facilities across the UK.
REIDsteel are proud to have played a large part […]
