Coping stone and tactile replacement along with platform resurfacing
VS Rail was contracted as a specialist contractor to rebuild two platforms during a weeklong Christmas Blockade when the bridge deck supporting the station was renewed.BAM Nuttall chose VS Rail due to our proven competence of platform rebuilding and extensions along with our long working history with BAM Nuttall.
At the start of the blockade, VS Rail quickly removed the existing platform covering the under bridge to allow l to demolish and remove the track and bridge deck.i
Working closely with the P Way contractor, VS Rail we able to ensure logistics were not an issue and all parties were able to work efficiently and effectively.
Following the delayed installation of the bridge deck, VS Rail were able to re programme work and mobilise additional resources which enabled the overall programme to be recovered with the station being opened on time with works substantially completed.
Challenges overcome on this project included; bad weather, delay to programme, working around other contractors and high-quality finish requirements.
