Pod-Trak were contracted to supply, install and commission all the ETE associated to the CP5 plain line renewals.
CP5 plain line renewals stretched across the South West form Dorset to Greater London, Pod-Trak’s ETE division supported the renewals by installing and commissioning all the associated ETE for each site.
All ETE Materials, Tooling, Labour and Plant were provided by Pod-Trak. The works included the removal of the conductor rail and associated Negative and Positive Electrical Track Equipment.
Following the track renewals Pod-Trak installed new Rehau Insulator Supports to the sleeper ends and reinstated the conductor rail. New and/or recovered DC negative and Positive cables were connected and tested.
Due to the existing Conductor rail and associated ETE being reinstated a detailed survey was undertaken at each site to highlight any sub-standard parts of the railway that needed renewing.
