The newly refurbished station is to be run by TfL and will open to passengers using existing Southeastern services and also, serve the new Elizabeth Line (Crossrail).
Network Rail has expanded the railway through Abbey Wood from two to four tracks, built two new platforms and installed overhead line equipment (OLE) that will be used by Elizabeth Line trains.
Beaver Bridges had been contracted to remove and dispose of a temporary footbridge and staircase at the Abbey Wood station.
The main scope of works included the removal and disposal of a 3-flight staircase, 16 metre span x 4.9 metre bridge and support trestles.
Beaver Bridges provided a complete service with all lifts planned and executed safely and on time. The fully competent onsite team and crane crew ensured that all structures were removed in the most efficient, controlled way possible. The project involved particularly challenging crane lifts given the close proximity of the BT building.
All criteria were met, on time and performed safely.
