Southern Canopy Glazing Inspections

Frankham’s Rail Infrastructure Engineering team were commissioned by Network Rail to undertake condition surveys and reporting of 28 station canopies across the Southern and Wessex regions as part of their periodic responsibility to safeguard the operation of the railway and public at large.

Frankham were tasked with completing the tactile inspection of station canopies across Sussex and Wessex to ascertain their condition and provide recommendations on remedial repairs. The programme for completing the works was tight, and therefore required effective planning to ensure successful execution of the project.

Initially, we carried out reconnaissance visits of all the stations to assist in the planning, informing access requirements and restrictions. This enabled us to mitigate potential issues arising on site, and have several measures in place to ensure the works were completed.

By planning thoroughly, we were able to work in an agile and proficient way.
