Amey has been awarded a top contract by Network Rail to extend platforms at nine stations in the South East of England so they can accommodate new 12-car passenger trains carrying extra commuters into London.

In addition, Amey will carry out supporting works on the existing track, overhead line and signalling equipment and upgrade lighting, public address and CCTV security systems.

Amey will use an innovative mini piling system to support the new platform structures, which will save time and money for Network Rail and minimise disruption and noise to rail users and local residents.

In a traditional piling operation, specialist machines are used on the tracks and work is carried out during rail possessions, at evenings or weekends.

However, Amey’s mini piling system can be set up off the tracks, enabling lines to stay open for business throughout the project.

Survey and design work starts in July and all stations are due to be completed in November 2011.
