North West Electrification Programme
Readypower are pleased to have been part of the upgrade to one of the North Wests busiest rail routes - providing better, faster and more eco-friendly journeys for passengers.
- 829 No. 610mm dia CHS piles
- 705 No. 1000mm concrete auger foundations
- 20 No. pre-cast gravity foundations
- 122 No. cast in-situ gravity foundations
- 45 metres of sheet piling enabling works
The works were delivered primarily in non-disruptive possessions, 6 nights per week. To achieve the necessary output to hit key dates and commissioning dates, Readypower deployed 3 piling teams, 1 civils team and 1 logistics team. The teams were supported by a dedicated management team embedded into the clients project team. Reliable plant and haulage was key to the planned output but also to continuously manage the change on a daily basis, which resulted in heavy equipment being moved at last minute. Despite the challenges thrown up by the project and the departure of Tier 1 contractors, Readypower completed the scope for the Murphy Group in mid 2018.
