This design and build scheme involved the design and build of a new “Access for All” footbridge at Wendover Station. The structure comprised of piled reinforced concrete foundations and a steel superstructure clad in a combination of heritage brick and steel cladding.

The scheme require a DNO upgrade to power the newly installed lifts and footbridge lighting. The project was well received by Chiltern Railways who operate the station.

Key Challenges/Successes:

The scheme was undertaken in a live station environment with minimal platform closures or restrictions possible meaning significant possession working and the utilisation of a lightweight polystyrene bridge to enable plant and materials to access the island platform.

Works were carefully planned with the Station Manager and station staff to ensure that the works did not impact the operation of the station.

MPB managed all stakeholder liaison and 3rd party works including the DNO upgrade and enabling works than needed to be undertaken to ensure the works were completed in a timely manner.

MPB also managed and coordinated a constrained subcontractor programme including the M&E design and installation and the lift installation.
