Work on the new station platforms begins
Construction of platforms for the new lowered station has begun with the installation of precast panels.
These panels were cast from concrete in reusable moulds, and left to dry and cure offsite. Panels are transported to the construction site and lifted into place using cranes.
The City-bound and Seaford-bound platforms are formed using ‘L’ shaped precast panels, which will sit either side of the rail tracks to become the visible walls of the platforms.
Once each precast panel has been lifted into place, electrical and data cabling will be fed behind the panels and back filled to create a flat level that can be walked on. Later, a top coat of concrete will make it suitable for future rail passengers using the station.
