As part of the £1.2 billion East Coast Upgrade, the project involved a multi-million-pound investment in renewing track, signalling, and overhead line equipment at King’s Cross. The work simplified the layout of the tracks leading to this iconic station, improving reliability by making it easier for trains to arrive and leave. It saw our teams replace the track, signalling, and overhead line equipment on the approach to the station.
To detail the “as-built” alignment and level of circa 10.5km of tracks and plot results in Acad & MicroStation format drawing files.
Despite appearances in the above image, this was an extremely busy site, with multiple contractors and various plant movements to contend with.
Using the Amberg GRP1000 on track device associated with our Leica total stations, we detailed the “as-built” alignment and level in line with Network Rail standards and based it on existing survey control.
We were able to make use of the limited access and supplied multiple teams across a number of weeks.
Results were plotted in both an AutoCAD and MicroStation format along with a CSV file of coordinates. These were then integrated with the client’s own surveys to produce a final as-built record.
