We renewed the overline pedestrian bridge staircases as part of a refurbishment at Gerrards Cross railway station, Buckinghamshire.
Replacement of end of life wooden steps. Supply and fit of new fully load bearing fibreglass steps with risers.
Old wooden staircase removed
GRP tread and riser system
Staircase risers trimmed to uniform heights
Gerrards Cross station underwent a refurbishment project and as part of this scheme the pedestrian bridge required renovation. The existing wooden steps were in a poor state of repair so were removed and replaced with a GRP tread and riser system. Most of the materials were fabricated in house with the installation carried out over a period of one week.
In common with many old structures, the stairs were not of uniform dimension. This proved to be something of a challenge, with the risers having to be trimmed/cut to specific heights on the staircase to ensure an even going. The problems were successfully overcome.
