Dr Days to Filton Abbey Wood Capacity Improvement

DR. DAYS TO FILTON ABBEY WOOD CAPACITY IMPROVEMENT

Client: Network Rail

Taylor Woodrow is delivering the Filton Bank 4-track Capacity Improvement to relieve the existing bottleneck between Dr Days Junction and Filton Abbey Wood Station, achieved by expanding the then 2-track system to four tracks. Working under a Target Cost design and build contract we have been delivering a scope that includes:

  • Station upgrade works at two stations, including platform extensions and a new Platform 4 at Filton Abbey Wood, footbridge construction, M&E works, information / security systems, and external lighting
  • Installing 15km of new track (including drainage, new high-speed S&C and signalling)
  • Extensive earthworks, cutting and embankment stabilisation to increase track bed width
  • Upgrade of 17 existing railway structures, including four bridge reconstructions

Due to the number of interfacing contracts, and the limited amount of available possession, effective and collaborative booking of possessions and railway access has been a significant success factor in achieving project milestones.
