Signal Box Refurbishments, various locations throughout Scotland.
as follows: Auchterarder, Blackford (Near Stirling), Barrhead (Glasgow), Longforgan (Dundee), Hilton Junction (Perth), Kingussie and Montrose North.
Works comprised of an all-trade refurbishment to facilitate significant improvement of the working environment for signalling staff and to preserve the integrity of the existing structures. Some of the Signal boxes are “listed” therefore requiring additional attention to replacement materials and the workmanship to replicate the original construction detail and appearance. Individual values of refurbishments varied from £50,000 to £200,000 with overall contract value approximately £750,000. Works were carried out whilst boxes were operational and in line with Network Rail’s strict Health and Safety policies.
