GSMR Project Civils Enabling Works

CLIENT: Irish Rail
DATE: Jul 2023
LOCATION: Nationwide

The objective of the GSM-R project is to install telecoms towers and monopoles with associated civils and services works to facilitate the transition of train communications to a modern digital radio network.  The overall project is divided into packages of individual sites ranging from 4 sites to 18 sites on the Irish Rail network nationwide.  Sites include greenfield sites, Irish Rail properties, sites adjacent to the rail line, railway bridges and level crossings.  To date, Global Rail Services have completed over 100 sites

Global Rail Services takes on the role of main contractor and PSCS for the project.  The works are carried out adjacent to the live railway and public areas such as public roads, train stations and carparks.  A number of sites are greenfield sites requiring liaison with landowners and residents.  Global Rail Services also liaise closely with Irish Rail for works taking place beside the live railway which require day and night time possessions and isolations.

All temporary works are designed and implemented by Global Rail Services.  These include construction of temporary access roads and piling platforms, craneage/lift plans, protection of existing services within the vicinity of the worksites and stabilisation of embankments and deep excavations.  Global Rail Services are responsible for reinstatement of all access areas on completion.
