Network Rail awarded Sisk Rail a contract to design and install a new access walkway to the roof of the depot at Cardiff Canton.
The purpose of the walkway is to allow access to maintain the roof mounted ventilation fans, as the existing roof structure design does not incorporate access arrangements.
Sisk Rail proposed a method that involved developing a GRP and aluminium hybrid solution, which was lighter to install (than the original traditional steel design, helping to overcome access difficulties).
The works were undertaken mostly during the day working around the busy train maintenance crews.
