Hagside Level Crossing

Client: Transport for Greater Manchester

Project Value: £340k

Completion Date:  January 2021

Jamieson’s were appointed to deliver this project for Transport for Greater Manchester which involved improved access to residents across the level crossing in Radcliffe and improved sighting distances for cars and trams.

As part of our works we were required to create a new switch electrical room and electrical upgrades to the existing equipment and infrastructure. Jamieson’s ensured all services had been successfully transferred prior to demolition of the existing line side buildings.

Due to the sites location on a light railway within a residential area, health and safety was of paramount importance. We provided strict health and safety procedures and ensured regular liaison with local residents, particularly around night working.

Our Scope of Works included:

  • Reduction of embankment to improve vision for cars and trams
  • Extensive electrical and infrastructure upgrades
  • Construction of new switch electrical room
  • Demolition of line side buildings
  • Drainage and ducting improvements
  • Improved street lighting
  • Installation of CCTV to the level crossing
  • Hard standing area to Metrolink
  • New fencing
  • Improved signalling
