Global Rail Construction Limited Awarded Richmond to Gunnersbury Civils Works
UK Rail Infrastructure Contractor, Global Rail Construction Limited, is delighted to confirm their award and subsequent mobilisation for the GRIP 6-8 TTS troughing installation works on the LUL Network between Richmond to Gunnersbury on behalf of BAM.
Having already successfully completed the Design works for this Cable Route Management System route as part of a separate contract with BAM, this latest contract win is testament to Global Rail Construction Limited’s (GRCL’s) integrated end to end, Design and Construct capabilities.
These works form part of the wider modernisation and up-grading the Sub-Surface Railway network, comprising of the Metropolitan, District, Circle and Hammersmith & City Lines, whereby Network Rail is required to design and build new Cable Route Management Systems to support primary Power/Signal cables from Turnham Green to Richmond.
GRCL’s project team are now gearing-up for the installation of nearly 4000m of TTS 200 troughing. All works will be undertaken during night-time short track access possessions, so full programme management and project traceability is crucial for the success of these works.
Logistics management is a vital ingredient to the success of these works. GRCL has therefore, developed a thorough plan for the collection, delivery and subsequent placing of materials for in advance of the installation works.
Free-issue materials will be collected by a Crane Wagon from a depot in Wembley and taken to a Road Rail Access Point (RRAP) as required to support the installation works. During this time, GRCL will provide all necessary traffic and pedestrian management and any parking bay suspensions to enable the TTS trough to be delivered to site safely and as required to support the works.
On successful arrival at the RRAP, the crane wagon will then offload the troughing onto waiting Road Rail Vehicles (RRV’s) for forward delivery to site, to support the subsequent fully managed installation process.
From early mobilisation through to project close out, the timescales for completion are seven months.
Managing Director, Marco Lombardelli added:
“We are delighted with this latest contract win and look forward to handing over these works; meeting the required programme, safely and coherently; in conjunction with our long-term partner BAM”
