Trowbridge Platform Extension
MegaTech Projects LTD (MPL) were awarded the contract to install a 13 meter Platform Extension to platform 1 at Trowbridge Station. Delivering for Great Western Railway (GWR) with AMCO as the main contractor Trowbridge 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). Trowbridge was a unique installation for MPL as the compound was directly adjacent to the area of installation.
The close proximity of the compound was utilised by allowing the RRV to access the Cess directly from the compound to operate as a standard excavator. This meant the track could remain wheels free and the close proximity of materials could aid in the speed of installation. Trowbridge was installed in February 2018 during Rules of the Route possessions and took a total of 5 working hours.
