    Saxmundham Rail Station, Suffolk, UK

    GRP Rail Station Platform

    Project Overview

    Dura Composites tackled a challenging railway project by replacing a deteriorating timber platform with their adjustable GRP platform in just nine days.

    Keeping passengers and goods moving with minimal disruption.

    When tasked with bringing a fresh approach to a planned railway project with incredibly tight deadlines, we relish the challenge. In the video below, you’ll hear from Greater Anglia and Roberts & Sale how a degraded timber platform was replaced with a new adjustable GRP Dura Platform solution in just 9 days!

    GRP rail platform materials supplied from UK stockholding.

    With a reputation for design assistance and the supply of safe, innovative, cost-efficient composite products, Dura Composites were able to supply platform material from the extensive stocks at our 2.5-acre Operations Centre in the East of England. We’re proud to have collaborated with our industry partners on this rewarding project, with contract awarded, designed, supplied and installed, all within 8 weeks.

    Modular sections with in-built water management and integral lines.

    The GRP rail platform modular Dura Platform 40 product was selected due to the fact it can be easily moved into position without heavy equipment, reducing cost and overall installation time. Modular, lightweight, height adjustable and safety boosting, it proved the perfect choice for this station platform refurbishment project.
