    DLR S&C Track Slab Renewal’s

    Project Details

    Railtech Innovations were the responsible contractor commissioned, by the principal contractor ASH Civil Construction, to complete a challenging S+C renewal and re-rail over the August 2020 bank holiday weekend. Our client, Docklands Light Railway, had identified the need for a life expired swing nose S+C crossing, to be replaced with a fixed nose cast crossing as well as the remainder of the S+C layout ironwork.

    Additionally,  we re-railed two hundred metres of plain line rail around a 60mtr curved radius which was a challenge in itself. The new design required existing baseplates, grout pads and holding down bolts, within the layout to be replaced and altered to accommodate the new components and to allow for the gauge to be corrected.

    One of the major challenges we faced during this delivery was management of the risk presented by COVID-19, detailed risk assessments were produced and implemented on site including the provision of a ‘COVID pack’ for every member of staff at the start every shift containing new PPE and disinfectant. Welfare facilities, were above and beyond the normal requirements,  and included a 24hr cleaning team to ensure the site was as safe as possible.

    To date the directors of Railtech Innovations and ASH Civil Construction are extremely pleased that no member of staff or contractor involved in the project has reported any symptoms of the virus.
