Adey Steel Plays Key Role in Nottingham Station Development

19th August 2013

Adey Steel has played a key role in the construction of the new Hub at Nottingham’s railway station. The multi-million pound redevelopment scheme will see a new interchange connecting the city’s tram and trains. Adey Steel has fabricated and supplied 250 tonnes of steelwork to form the main structural frame of the new Southern Concourse. The on-site installation programme of 16 weeks included working adjacent to the live railway lines and the construction of the new tram bridge.

Adey Steel has also supplied and installed steelwork for the new canopy for the re-developed of the 173 metre platform 6. Installation was carried out during the station closure to a very tight programme, with many components pre-assembled in the factory to speed-up installation on site.

Other work at the station included strengthening the existing station structure for the new tram bridge.

As well as the train station development, Adey Steel has also supplied and installed structural steelwork to extend the Wilkinson Street tram depot which has increased its capacity ready for the tram extension in the south and west of the city.
