Oxley Train Depot Extension
Provision of a new shed facility to accommodate the new 11 car fleet of trains.
Cairn Cross provided integrated solutions for eleven new car Pendolino train sets. We extended and raised the building to incorporate new electrical overhead line equipment (OHLE) at the repair facility, included an inspection pit and extended the existing track.
The roof of the existing building was raised to allow the building to remain watertight during the construction process. The beams, purlins and roof sheets were reused, providing a cost-saving to our client and reduced this projects carbon footprint.
Building around and eventually rerouting optic fibre cables controlling the main call centres and track sensitive communications, utilizing cradles and shrouds allowing the client to fit the diversion in with their works programme.
Changing metal key clamp handrail for the nonconductive GRP handrail.
Working with the client ensured their maintenance regime was uninterrupted and allowed the project to be delivered on time to a demanding programme.
