Caunton have benefitted from a rail improvement project which costed around £146.6 million and lead to the improvement of the Cornish rail network, as well as a significant ‘Night Riviera’ sleeper service upgrade. The company has supplied the steelwork for a new maintenance shed at Long Rock Train Maintenance Depot half a mile east of Penzance railway station.
Caunton worked for main contractor C. Spencer Ltd.
The main maintenance building included crane beams and their connections, of course, and required design by Caunton to execution class three(EXC3) under CE marking regulations.
Caunton has a strong track record (excusing the pun) in rail maintenance projects. More details of projects at Doncaster, Crawley, Hornsey, Reading and Southampton may be obtained from our web site caunton.co.uk
