Key Information

Delivering within the timeframes

Working with multiple bridge structures

Delivered to Network Rail Standards

Pod-Trak were contracted to undertake the Permanent Way works in connection with replacement of existing Steel Bridge Decks on Anglia Route.

The bridges involved are rail over road bridges in East London on the Network Rail Line from Fenchurch Street to Shoeburyness.

Pod-Trak, in close collaboration with the client, developed a suitable methodology and programme of work to enable each deck replacement to be achieved within a suitable Possession, while minimising any disruption that could potentially be caused on this busy route.

Creating an effective process
At each structure the existing Track and Formation was removed by Pod-Trak and the site handed over to specialised contractors for the Deck Replacement works. On completion of the Bridge Deck Replacement works Pod-Trak installed the following:

  • Back of Wall Drainage
  • Formation
  • Sleepers
  • Rail

Each of these elements were installed to be integrated with the in-situ infrastructure.

Pod-Trak also managed all Rail Welding / Stressing and Tamping works in order to deliver a high quality finish to relevant Network Rail standards.

As an integral part of our works, the Pod-Trak team undertook Critical Rail Temperature (CRT) Management and Track Monitoring to ensure the safety of the operational railway.
