Bright handrail for key site in Elgin
A BRIGHTLY coloured handrail will assist access for the disabled and visually impaired at a key site in Elgin thanks to AJ Engineering.
The company recently supplied and installed a DDA Handrail to the underpass at the A96 at the Elgin Bus Station.
The work was carried out on behalf of BEAR Scotland.
Wilson Burnett who managed the project said: “This is the first time we have done this type of DDA hand railing. One of the challenges was keeping the underpass open to the public whilst continuing to work, but the project went well. We were on site for two weeks and it involved three members of staff.”
A spokesman for BEAR Scotland added: “AJ Engineering did a great job of installing the new handrails at the Alexandra Way underpass in Elgin. All the work was done with the underpass still open to the public. BEAR Scotland appreciate that disturbance to the public was kept to a minimum and that all work was done with their safety in mind. We would like to thank all the AJ Engineering staff involved in the job for installing the handrails and for their cooperation with the public.”
