The proposed works comprised the installation of disabled access ramp to both Platforms 1 and 2 at Milliken Park Station. The layout of the ramp and stair structures was agreed with Scotrail and Network Rail at Form F001 stage.
The design was in accordance with DDA, BS 8300, Eurocodes and all appropriate Network Rail Standards.
The existing Platform 1 access stairs and ramps were to be replaced with a Network Rail standard steel ramp which transitioned into a masonry and concrete ramp at platform level. A Network Rail standard steel stair was installed adjacent to the ramp.
The existing access at Platform 2 consists of a tarmac ramp with a non-compliant 1 in 12 gradient from Corseford Avenue, with recently installed steel handrails. The existing Platform 2 access ramp was replaced with a new ramp consisting of a reinforced concrete slab founded on imported granular fill and masonry walls. A concrete stair with masonry walls was installed adjacent to the ramp.
Steel handrails were installed on both sides of the ramps.
The ramps were installed at a gradient of 1 in 16 to meet DDA requirements.
