PERMANENT SOLUTION TO OVERCOME ONGOING ISSUES OF TRIP HAZARDS ON RAILWAY PLATFORM

Case Study

Problem

Serfis were asked by the client to find a solution to overcome the ongoing issues of trip hazards on the aging MK station platform No4.

The platform was failing and had to be handled carefully to avoid further damage so this meant any remedial works had to be the least intrusive with no heavy plant or machinery.

Solution

The Grindlazer DC87 was supplied to remove the trip hazard as this could be done in very small increments to keep the disturbance to a minimum however, this left the surface with exposed aggregate and not looking pretty at all.

To rectify this, Permafyx L272 thin lay MMA was used to reinstate the surface which had the added benefit of not requiring any compaction but would be durable enough to withstand the high level of foot traffic that a station platform would be subjected to.

Result

The finished result was, the platform was restored to a safe level of accessibility to all without having to close to the public outside of the pre-planned possessions.

 Due to the fact that very minimal removal was needed, there was virtually no waste to transport off of the station via the lift and bridge.
