CEMEX creates one of its biggest rail crossing

CEMEX Rail Solutions was specified for the construction of one its biggest rail crossing outside Waterloo station in London, the busiest station in Britain.

Constructed on behalf of Progress Rail, suppliers of rail parts, for Network Rail, the multiple crossing consisted of 10 sets of switches through the 1800 metres of rail track.

The 1800 metre bespoke crossing was designed and constructed at CEMEX’s Rail Solutions Somercotes site in Derbyshire. Each bearer was numbered and colour coded before stacking and transporting to the Beeston assembly facility, then onto Hoo junction, a rail yard near Rochester for layout and addition of the track.

The multiple crossing is laid outside Waterloo station, which has 24 platforms and an estimated 99.1million passenger journeys equivalent to three people per second getting on and off at the terminus.
