Norwich Victoria stabling design for Abellio Greater Anglia
Abellio Greater Anglia (AGA) commissioned CPMS to undertake GRIP 1 (output definition) to GRIP 4 (single option development) feasibility reports and surveys for new stabling depots across the Anglia Network.
AGA's new rolling stock requires greater train stabling capacity, both for bringing into service and maintenance facilities. CPMS Rail was requested to validate the option of installing stabling and maintenance facilities at ten different locations across Anglia to support their franchise commitment of increasing train frequency and rolling out new trains.
These multi-disciplinary reports provided AGA with in-depth knowledge of each location along with an outline of the works required, risks associated and estimated cost for bringing sidings into operation from GRIP 2 to GRIP 8.
CPMS scope was to undertake site walkouts and general inspection of each location and prepare a GRIP one Pre-Feasibility Study including cost estimates for required work.
Each site was provided with difficulty ratings for both construction and bringing into service along with a cost estimate quantified by discipline.
The reports summary provided outlined key difficulties, risks and costs for each site to enable AGA to make an informed decision on the location of their new stabling and maintenance facilities.
