This week saw the start of an ongoing project to replace and repair the weather canopies on platforms 1 & 2 at Blackheath Station. We are proud to be involved with our client in maintaining yet another historic railway station given the station’s Grade II listed status.
After completing some initial surveys and inspections our project remit for the start of these works, carried out through a 27-hour abnormal possession, and beginning with a thorough Site Safety Briefing was:
Provision of staffing:
- Site Manager
- Provision of COSS and Level B Strapping Team
- Pasma Operatives
- General PTS Operatives including carpenters
Works Carried out at this stage:
- Remove the existing dagger boards
- Remove guttering
- Remove pigeon netting.
Clean and tidy site ready for handback.
All works completed safely under Project Manager Anthony Buckley.
The removed timber waste from site was recycled under our timber sustainability plan, collected by our supply chain partner, timber will be recycled into community projects, material of a poorer grade will be sent for processing to wood pellets for use in the power generation sector.

Our extensive rail experience of over 120 years, combining decades of hands-on knowledge, providing building enhancements and maintenance solutions, improving infrastructure for passengers and operators, delivering major projects, and fulfilling long-term maintenance contracts really sets us apart.
Our services are varied from structural maintenance on tunnels, bridges, foot crossings, signal gantries, to station refurbishment, platform enhancements, civils works on and around the track, the mechanism management of lineside vegetation and further afield, painting of all types of structures and lastly but perhaps most importantly the provision of rail labour, not only supporting the projects we carry out for our projects but for the provision of labour to other clients.
