Theale Station, Berkshire
Client : Network Rail & Crossrail
Value : £400,000 (€460,047)
The purpose of the project was to provide a step free platform access platform solution at Theale Station for use during the Christmas 2010 blockade and on ten further occasions over the duration of the Reading Station Area Remodelling (RSAR) Project.
The contract originally required a temporary platform, however Sisk Rail offered the client a permanent and sustainable solution within a demanding programme by modifying a ‘recycled’ modular platform in partnership with supply chain specialist Tata.
A fully collaborative approach including the client and stakeholders, including Network Rail, resulted in a solution which exceeded expectations and was delivered two weeks ahead of programme and with £29,000 cost savings.
