Premier Rail Services are one of the UK’s leading installers of Strail and Rosehill level crossing systems. The complex nature of such work requires the rail network to be closed to allow the work to be completed.
Critical to the success of programme delivery is the supply of ready-mix concretes, no matter the time of day or night. Accumix Concrete provides a comprehensive out of hours service including nights, weekends and bank holidays, and as RISQS approved suppliers they are highly experienced in supporting this type of work.
Schemes typically require extensive communications with all stakeholders to understand the programming and timing of the works, including an in-depth knowledge of Network Rail Standard Details for level crossings. On arrival on site, Accumix will liaise with the nominated site agent to confirm site arrangements including methods of working, timing and of course use of trained banksmen for truck movements while on site.
Level crossings are occasionally located in built up residential areas, and so Accumix place great importance enforcing a strict switch off policy to help mitigate against any unnecessary noise
Accumix Concrete was engaged by Network Rail (Wales Route) to deliver, mix and place the concrete to repair issues with the Onibury level crossing on the A49 – a major trunk road connecting Leominster and Shrewsbury.
During two out of hours visits, our team supplied 20m3 of C40 72-hour rapid setting concrete.
Work was carried out using two volumetric vehicles and a 30-metre boom pump which was able to place the product exactly where it was required.
Accumix Concrete provided concrete for work on London Underground’s Metropolitan Line. The job was to install new drainage channels at two sites. All services were done during one weekend.
The project involved cutting the track, removing the ballast, excavation, rebar and drainage pipe placement, shuttering and pouring rapid strength gain concrete to create the track bed. Deliveries had to be made to the central London location on an out of hours basis.
All work was carried out within the planned engineering time. The line was reopened on schedule and with no further disruption to services.
