The works were carried out to electrically connect the newly constructed Doncaster Carr Depot to the East Coast Main Line. This work was essential in helping the depot operators as part of an extensive order book for new rolling stock in the UK. Along with new Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) construction, it included alterations to existing equipment.
Pod-Trak installed a total of ten in-site concrete foundations to support seven Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) structures and three anchors at the Doncaster Carr depot. Works continued with the installation of SPS, registration equipment and 250m of MKlllB 107mm2 contact and AWAC catenary.
The scope of the works also included the installation of a high-speed Arthur Flury section insulator and Morris Line 3 position switch.
Works were successfully completed by the team within a few months. The section was proved and handed back with all necessary handback documentation to the customer – with a transparent process throughout the works.
