Pod-Trak was contracted by Cleshar Contract Services Ltd to install a new overhead line system between Mitcham junction and Beddington Lane.
The line was previously a single line which was being upgraded to a twin tracked system. At Wimbledon Station the existing platform was extended to allow two trams to be stabled on the platform, and a new second platform to be built with an extended line.
Pod-Trak’s scope of works at Beddington Lane included 21 piled foundations, 14 new OLE structures, four cantilevers, 12 twin-tack cantilevers, the removal of redundant structures, the transfer of existing OLE to new structures, the running of new OLE twin contact conductors and the registration works.
At Wimbledon Station the works included the removal of redundant OLE structures and wire, the installation of 7 new OLE structures, 200m of new twin contact, new switches and section prove the new lines.
This project was driven by a very tight programme to allow commissioning and handover of the new system. All works were planned and delivered within the timescales required, and were successfully handed over after meeting the client’s technical requirements.
