Upgrading and replacing life-expired equipment to reduce delays, increase network capacity and provide more timely and accurate information to passengers. In addition, renewal of the interlocking and external equipment with control of the interlocking areas being migrated to the new Three Bridges Rail Operating Centre.
Kelly Rail also delivered all track handback and track monitoring scope across the project using in-house and highly competent engineers. The Kelly Rail team was signed off by Network Rail at the start of the works to ensure the management and implementation of the project’s Critical Rail Temperature (CRT) management plan.
Other surveys completed included a track versine survey and cloud scan for signals.
Kelly Rail integrated the planning of possessions to allow for maximum outputs, including increasing resource levels to assist with programme requirements and pre-planning all material deliveries to site by preparing them off site, palletising and shrink wrapping them.
The collaborative approach was fundamental in managing design and commercial change efficiently via change request notifications (CRN’s) resulting in reduced programme impact.
