GWR Long Rock Traction Maintenance Depot gets up to speed

The Long Rock Depot, Penzance project formed part of the larger Great Western Railway enhancement scheme to improve the sleeper train service between Cornwall and London.

As part of the improvement scheme, GWR constructed a new £20million depot at Long Rock in addition to redeveloping the existing facility, and TPS360 were fortunate to have played an integral role in each phase.  Assisting with the specification and planning of the works alongside many other trades on a very tight programme, we worked closely with the client, offering and providing guidance and advice every step of the way.

To help reduce project development costs and to accelerate project delivery times, our in-house surface preparation team and state of the art diamond grinding equipment were utilised.  The remote-controlled machines significantly simplified the work and extended the grinding time per day, together with our dust extractor systems that are equipped with high performance integrated pre-separators that remove up to 95% of dust created in the grinding process – making it virtually dust free and improving the working environment for not only our staff but also for the client and other contractors working on-site assisting in the meeting of the tight timescales in place as part of the project plan.
