Trackwork were awarded the contract to carry out the permanent way upgrade and extension works to the existing Wednesbury Depot, whilst maintaining existing operational capabilities.
The scope of works included:
In addition to installation works, our in-house design team provided advice to assist the principle designer in achieving final constructability. The specialist switches and crossings were manufactured using Trackwork’s in-house manufacturing facility based at Hetton-le-Hole, County Durham.
The works were phased and programmed to ensure the client was able to maintain operational capabilities in the pre-existing facility, with possessions taken where new works encroached / tied-in.
