For this flagship Network Rail Project to refurbish the historic Edinburgh Waverley Station, Nationwide Rail were involved in the Package 3 contract to create a new architect designed bridge entrance together with complete refurbishment of the Platform 8 & 9 and canopies.
Nationwide Rail were employed in a number of roles, predominantly in the dismantling of the existing Market Street entrance bridge and platform canopies. These were sequenced strictly in accordance with our Temporary Works designs, ensuring stability and with detailed consideration to prevent progressive collapse.
The canopies were removed close to the OLE and partially in close proximity to the operational railway and platforms, for which we developed specific methods of works to safeguard the station.
