Drivepoint Contractors was the Principal Contractor on this project with partial Design and Build. The project was to make Emsworth Station 100% DDA compliant with the construction of a 120M long ramp.

We proposed a solution to retain the existing platform structure to enable construction of the ramp, of a King Post Retaining Wall. This involved boring 600mm diameter holes and inserting 13M long H section steels with pre-cast concrete in-fill panels. Once completed we were able to construct the RC ramp from street level to platform level. 25M of interlocking sheet piles were installed to retain the upper level as temporary works, whilst forming the upper ramp.

Night Possession work was required to carry out reinstatement of the platform and fencing. Our scope of works also included all RI concrete work, CCTV, Lighting, handrails, fencing and landscaping. The existing subway was made DDA compliant with the construction of a ramp for access to the subway.
