Heathrow Express Tunnel


Expertise: Civil Engineering
Value: £1.3m (drainage) £350k (signage) £100k (minor civils)

Pod-Trak installed 2,140m of ACO channel, more than 2,000 emergency exit, mileage and information signs across 24km of tunnel network, minor civil engineering to the Portal compound and tunnels and trial installation of Delkor Platform Gap Fillers at T5. Working closely with a new client, Pod-Trak has been continually involved in works on the Heathrow Express tunnels, including input to design and development. Challenging conditions during the drainage works were met by close co-ordination with the Heathrow Express Control Room for nightly activation of tunnel fans and control of dust to ensure minimal disruption and nuisance to passengers.

Pod-Trak were proud to be involved in the first UK trial installation of Delkor Platform Gap Fillers, where the works were witnessed by a team who travelled from Australia; these works were also recognised industry-wide.
