Project: Maidenhead Sidings, Maidenhead Stabling Lines, Berkshire, UK
Client: Balfour Beatty
Dura Composites products were selected for the Maidenhead project by Balfour Beatty, a recognised leader in modern rail engineering.
Maidenhead sidings are a key part of Network Rail’s electrification of the Great Western Main Line in preparation for Crossrail.
The £4.5 million sidings were opened in July 2017, 18 months ahead of schedule and feature a number of Dura Composites GRP Modular Access Platforms and GRP Walkways.
The precision engineered Glass Reinforced Plastic solutions were installed by Balfour Beatty Rail and are the perfect fit for the OHLE (Overhead Line Equipment) environment thanks to their non-conductive properties.
Dura Composites GRP profiles can be designed to comply with bespoke site specifications and offer significant improvements over traditional alternatives, including increased build-a-bility and a dramatic reduction in possession times.
