Scope: Remove and reinstate the tarmac pavement in front of Walsall Station and install a new drop kerb wheelchair access from car park.
Our civils team had been contracted to carry out these works just as the Covid19 pandemic hit the UK. They had been planned as night works due to the volume of public using the access/egress from Walsall station. As the pandemic broke the number of trains running reduced and the station became extremely quiet.
Working with our client and taking HSE advice, we put in place Covid protection and social distancing practices and changed the works from nights to days.
The existing tarmac and tactiles were removed, the kerbs dropped and new tarmac and tiles installed.
