Project Description


VEDA Associates were employed by Dyer & Butler as lead designer for their platform refurbishment works at Dunton Green Station.

The remit for the refurbishment works included the replacement of a section of suspended steel platform, platform gauge design, lighting relocation and drainage design. The 20m long suspended steel platform was replaced during a single 18 hour possession with a new steel frame with large reinforced strip footings.

A large amount of temporary works were established prior to the possession works to enable the contractor to install the foundations, partly erect the new steel frame and partly demolish the existing platform.

As part of the refurbishment works the contractor installed new platform edge concrete copers, concrete tactile units, tarmac resurfacing and new platform drainage with soakaway established to the rear. A gauge survey was carried out on the existing platform edge and designs outlined the extent of work required to bring the platform edge into standard gauge along the solid fill platform.
