Caersws Station Platform Improvement Project

Sector: Rail

Client: Colas Rail

In late July 2019 Readypower Terrawise Ltd (RTL) was awarded a contract to deliver Platform improvements at Caersws Station, Powys and began on site in early October after possessions were confirmed. The Station is on a section of single line between Newtown (Y Drenewydd) and Aberystwyth.

The project involved adjusting or replacing 109 metres of coping stones on a single platform delivered in midweek and weekend Possession works. The Possessions were all non- disruptive.

A small project team was established to deliver the following assets:

  • 24m of adjustments re-using existing Type A coping stones
  • 85m of new Type B coping stone
  • Platform re-surfacin
  • Refreshing the yellow and white line markings

The volume of work varied with available access (there were interruptions by a Rail Head Treatment Train [RHTT] and the weather was also a factor.
