Page 6: Conclusion
The Leven Viaduct project provides a good example of the challenges and excitement of working for Network Rail. On 16th July 2006, the viaduct was officially re-opened on time and to budget. Network Rail invested £14 million to remove decking and support girders across all 49 spans of the viaduct, improving safety standards and guaranteeing the availability of a vital transport link. In doing so they were able to secure the future of one of the North West's most historic and impressive landmarks for another 140 years.
