This contract involved the replacement of two existing timber staircases with steel ones and the reconstruction of the footbridge.
The main works had to be carried out during a 54 hour blockade commencing at midnight on Christmas eve.
Britcon were also responsible for the civil and building works including access scaffold required during the blockade.
This project required very careful preparation and forward planning with Murphy and our subcontractors and the assembly of a dedicated team prepared to work continuous shifts over the Christmas period in very difficult circumstances.
The main lifts were carried out using a 500 tonne crane stood on the road above the station. The new staircases were trial erected in our yard, sheeted and delivered to site in modular sections to reduce time on site. Our work was completed with a few hours to spare and the station was back in use as planned
