Work underway to fix failed welds in horse tram tracks

Red concrete being dug up after defect discovered

Work is underway to fix two failed welds in the horse tram tracks on Douglas promenade.

The contractor is having to dig up the red concrete in the Strathallan area after a dip in the rail track was discovered.

As a result, a section of rail on either side of the welds needs to be removed and replaced.

The Department of Infrastructure says the defect only came to light once the concrete had been installed, and will be rectified by the contractor at no additional cost to the Department.
