STEM Visit to Coleraine Grammar School

1 Mins read

Work continues on Translink’s £500,000 project to replace bridge bearings on the Bann Railway Bridge in Coleraine, including strengthening works and localised refurbishment.

First constructed in the early 1920s’, the bridge carries a single track for approximately 240m over the River Bann on the Coleraine to Derry~Londonderry railway line and comprises eleven spans, one of which is a lifting bascule type to allow the passage of shipping to Coleraine Port.

The work continues with no disruption to railway services or maritime traffic passing to and from Coleraine.

As part of engagement and outreach associated with the project, a presentation supported by Translink contractors, Knockloughrim-based F.P McCann Ltd was given to Coleraine Grammar School students as part of an information day on careers in civil engineering.

The event was intended to promote STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to pupils at the school and encourage them to pursue these subjects to higher level.  Pupils learned about the career options available to them via STEM, as well as receiving an insight into the subjects and educational background they would require to pursue careers in construction and engineering.  Students also learned about the different routes into the engineering industry, such as college or university education and apprenticeships.
