Global Rail Services Ltd is part of the Global Infrastructure Group and is a leading Irish provider of design, construct and commission services for clients across a wide range of engineering and infrastructure sectors
Global Rail Services has commenced works on a new €2.5m project at Limerick Junction on behalf of Irish Rail.
The rail project involves construction of a new 260m precast concrete platform, the production, delivery and installation of a new 20m long Precast Concrete footbridge, stairs and lift shafts on piled foundations including all associated structural steelwork and all associated electrical and station/platform infrastructure at Limerick Junction Station.
The overall objective via the implementation of this scheme is to deliver improved journey times and provide timetable enhancements on the Dublin-Cork and Dublin-Limerick lines, which are currently restricted by a platform conflict at Limerick Junction.
These important works will provide time savings for Down trains scheduled to stop at Limerick Junction of 4.8 minutes, which affect 13 Cork trains/day and typically and one direct Tralee train. There will also be an average time saving of 11 minutes for all Limerick passengers connecting to and from Cork services at Limerick Junction.
Works will be completed both between trains and during railway possessions and are due to continue until June 2019. Global Rail Services have already set up a safe working compound and delineated the site from the railway corridor in order to commence works. Piling and Foundation works are nearing completion on both platforms. The delivery and installation of the new PCC Platform units will commence at the end of January.
The new down platform will remove constraints and speed restrictions associated with the current single platform, which caters for Dublin to Cork/Kerry services in both directions.
