- Key Benefit Innovative design that navigated the close proximity of a platform edge
When nationwide railway infrastructure and civil engineering service provider RCE Ltd were tasked with installing new lift shaft pits into the Prescot Station platform, they realised they would have to excavate very close to the platform edge.
In order to proceed with the job safely, RCE got in touch with MGF to supply the job with a series of sheets and frames.
When planning the excavation, engineers had to be careful to factor in an existing bridge foundation next to one pit.
Additionally, they had to be aware of disturbing the existing railway which was in close proximity of the second pit.
“The strong relationship and swift response by everyone involved made this project a success”Fred Sammut, Northern, Midlands & East Anglia Rail Sales Specialist
Due to the innovative designs and great communication across all fronts, RCE installed the lift shaft without a single issue.
MGF continue to build a mutually beneficial relationship with the client today.
