Pod-Trak undertook successful operational delivery of the civils aspect of the sidings reconfiguration of seven roads.
This included all deep drainage and cross track drainage which involved ‘through the box’ trenchbox utilisation, construction of UTXs, all formation grading and tying into existing levels, geotextile, OLE bases, caissons, bottom ballast and brushedfinish reinforced concrete walkways with cast-in Cubis Multiduct service routes and Cubis Stakkabox chambers.
These walkways were of two varieties – 1.5m wide driver walkways and 2.5m CET aprons – all at 450mm thick, which required careful interfacing with the CET pipework and furniture installer. Further interfaces with the M&E contractor and muckaway via engineering trains and conventional muck-away lorries required a great level of planning and coordination with the client on a daily basis.
Working within a live depot environment required additional care with moving people, plant and materials through the work areas. Contract works were completed a week ahead of Pod-Trak’s target programme and over a month ahead of the client’s latest revised programme.
