MCP Environmental provided asbestos removal services for Network Rails Watford Junction station, through principal contractor Colt Construction.
Services included: consultancy, manual removal and air testing.
MCP removed 70 square metres of asbestos insulating (AIB) board from the thorough fare link tunnel by hand, due to the limited nature of the site.
Watford Junction station serves 8 million passengers a year, on the busy West Coast Mainline.
The improvements ensure maintenance teams can safely access the area for future works, as asbestos materials have been removed.
The removal process included strict three stage air locks in a negative pressure environment and independent air monitoring, to ensure the area was certified clean prior to reopening the station.
Operatives worked throughout Christmas Day to ensure the job was completed to strict deadlines set by Network Rail.
“Well done MCP, thanks for all your help. Fantastic job, well organised and well executed”
