Case Study – CPR Awarded Civil Works at £33M Cadder Rail Yard

Complete Paving Requirements Scotland Ltd (CPR) are currently delivering civil engineering works at a £33M expansion of Cadder rail yard. The works have been funded by the Scottish Government and will provide service accommodation for a fleet of High-Speed Trains (HST).

Network Rail announced that the site’s development will provide three new service platforms, night-time accommodation, a cleaning facility, and a refuelling unit. It will also have a new two storey office building for Rail Alliance Systems Scotland (RSAS) and ScotRail staff. The rail yard will be able to accommodate six High Speed Trains which service the major cities in Scotland.

RSAS led by Network Rail, Babcock and Arcadis are delivering the project. CPR are the sub-contractor delivering civil engineering works as a Framework supplier to RSAS.

The site will accommodate several equipment and plant rooms for functions such as water servicing, CET and LV/HV sub stations. CPR were contracted to create the slabs and foundations for those areas.

The scope of the civils engineering works included excavation of the area for each of the rooms. CPR then supplied the concrete before placing, forming, reinforcing, and adding finishes to the slabs.

Works on the site will continue throughout 2021 across several contractors, as the site’s infrastructure and buildings are developed. The facility is expected to be fully functioning and in use by December 2021.
