Salford Central Station

Salford

Client Network Rail

As part of North West Electrification Phase 4 of work, a number of modifications were required to upgrade Salford Central for the increased line speed and for the electrification of the route. The works now enable the new rail services to run whilst plans to significantly redevelop the station in the near future are being developed.

DYSE undertook the design to reduce the extent of the canopy such that it would not obscure signal sighting for trains entering the station. DYSE also undertook temporary works for the working platform to carry out the works and designed a number of temporary works to 7 nearby of the signal structures to ensure stability during foundation strengthening works.
