Kennishead Platform Refurbishment

Project sector Rail
Project name Kennishead Platform Refurbishment
Project summary Removal and reconstruction of both platforms
Client name May Gurney
Project date Aug-10
Project duration 12 weeks

Both platforms measured 200m in length. The requirement was to remove and reconstruct all the platform components, including copers, tactile paving, surface water drainage, bituminous surfacing and lineside boundary fencing.

At locations along the platforms, the existing platform riser walls were taken down and rebuilt with engineering brick to replace defective masonry and infill redundant service voids.

The works were carried out under Rules of the Route possessions. It was a contract requirement that the platforms were returned to service and made fit for passengers use, every day.


This project involved a full refurbishment of both platforms at Kennishead Station.
