Workington North – Temporary Station

r-wn-01-16-9

Following the devastating floods in Workington, the main road and pedestrian links across the river were either lost or declared unfit for use.

Network Rail’s response was to build a temporary station and open it to the public within 7 days (!)

JNP Group rose to the challenge by providing structural details and on-site advice and supervision to enable Network Rail to fulfill its promises.

The station was opened as promised at 9.00 am Monday morning.

JNP Group services provided:

  • Vital infrastructure work.
  • Emergency response due to flooding.
  • Temporary station built from scratch.
  • Temporary station platforms and temporary footbridge design.
  • Network Rail approvals achieved in a short timescale.
  • National news coverage (Workington Floods 2009).

Project Value: approx. £400K

Client: Halton Scaffolding
