Cotswolds platform extensions

Charlbury: one of the stations slated for platform extension.

DYER & Butler has won a contract from Network Rail to deliver platform extensions and associated works on the North Cotswold line between Oxford and Hereford.

Planned for completion in December 2018, the scheme involves works at Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-in- Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham and Pershore stations. The work is being undertaken to accommodate Great Western Railway’s new Intercity Express Trains and also includes resurfacing, drainage renewals, realignment of copers, lighting, platform gauging, stop boards and shelter upgrades. The extensions will be delivered using modular expanded polystyrene platform systems (EPS).
