Project Summary

Weeley station is a two platform Category F station operated by Abellio Greater Anglia. The access to the station is via a single entrance to Platform 2. The only access to Platform 1 was via an existing Exmouth precast reinforced concrete footbridge spanning two tracks with dog leg staircases to each platform. The GRIP 3 remit outlined that the footbridge was nearing life expiration and it was proposed to replace the structure with a new TUM 400 Steel Footbridge.
