Just-in-time level crossing solution London Underground
edilon)(sedra started supplying a just-in-time level crossing solution for London Underground. The edilon)(sedra Corkelast® LCS-350 solution, which will be installed in the Ruislip depot, saves London Underground money on storage and handling.
In the first week of February 2018 a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) was carried out by London Underground, which involved a full dimensional check to ensure the level crossing slabs were identical to submitted and approved technical design documents. The FAT was given a pass by London Underground.
The slab manufacturing plant is in Cornwall, United Kingdom, where under the guidance of edilon)(sedra Application Engineering and edilon)(sedra Contracting the slabs are manufactured.
The installation of the 53 m level crossing (18 x 3 m slabs / curve radius: 121 m) will be carried out during the weekend of 16, 17 and 18 February 2018.
