Project: Golders Green Station – Platform Strengthening Project
Works Value: £50,000
Platform strengthening works comprising of additional supports being installed underneath the disused platform so that this could be used to take the required passenger loadings and become a ‘live’ platform.
The supports comprised of steel beams, props and harjacks with the best combination of supports was agreed with the client’s designers as works progressed to ensure their requirements were met at all times. Because of the differences in the ground under the platform it was necessary to adapt the original design to suit the existing conditions, and achieving this was the biggest challenge of this project.
