Drivepoint Contractors was the Principal Contractor on this project which consisted of a 2m wide extension to the rear of both trestle platforms stretching 50m in length.

Access was particularly restricted, safety critical staff (COSS, SSOW pack) were implemented for the movement of materials along the existing platforms. Material procurement and distribution of materials was logistically challenging due to the lack of storage areas on either scheme.

  • Vegetation clearance and hand dug strip foundations
  • Block work retaining walls
  • Hollow rib steel decking
  • Removal of existing uprights and upstand to the trestle platforms
  • Reinforcement
  • Brushed finish concrete and installation of bowtop galvanised fencing to match existing
  • Alterations to existing station lighting
  • Careful consideration during excavations to the buried services (troughing)
