MegaTech Projects LTD (MPL) were awarded the contract to install a 36.5 metre platform extension at Melksham station in Gloucester. Delivering for Great Western Railway (GWR) with AMCO as the main contractor Melksham was part of a wider project on the Cotswold line which included 9 platform extensions installed by MPL, all of which were designed by Adams Design Associates and installed using our Expanded Polystyrene System (EPS).

The Melksham extension was undertaken during Rules of the Route (ROTR). As Melksham is a station with a history of flooding MPL installed a ‘hit and miss’ variation of the EPS system which allows for the flow of floodwater through the platform. The Melksham extension was installed in May 2018 and took a total of 13 working hours.
