Drayton Abandonment (CAT 73)
Client: Network Rail – Sussex Works Delivery Track Unit
Readypower Terrawise Limited (RTL) were approached by Network Rail’s Sussex Works Delivery Track team, to undertake the abandonment of 3 number S&C units and the installation of 200m of plain line throughout the worksite, as part of the asset upgrade which supported the overall IP signalling programme.
RTL were engaged under an NR4 contract of works to undertake the CAT 73 abandonment and plain line installation with full stress, weld, and recovery of redundant materials, including full modification of the third rail throughout the footprint and IBJ recovery.
Personally this is the first time we have achieved 3 abandonments within the 52hr possession and your teams interactions with all the multiple disciplines, I felt, was very proactive and professional and supportive to the project. Along with the quality finish with good feedback from Both RAM and Local TME there were some efficiencies within the core delivery
