Project: Sillwood Sidings RRAP
Details: Installation of a 35m Strail RRAP
London Overground's requirement for an on/off tracking point that is also suitable for engineering vehicles.
"When is a RRAP not a RRAP .... when it becomes a 35m on/off tracking point."
With ever increasing pressure on the turnaround times required on maintanance and renewal works, Transport for London required a new rapid access point for its maintenance fleet.
Premier Rail Services were awarded the contract to undertake the construction of the single road access point.
With the collaboration of Transport for London and its teams, the works included cutting the existing concrete apron to allow for the installation of the new Strail units. Construction of form work to tie in the existing works with the new.
