CASE STUDY:

TFL Rolling Stock Disposal

Services: Redundant rolling stock disposal and recycling

Project duration: Three year framework agreement

Summary: Econ was retained to dismantle and dispose of redundant rolling stock for a number of TfL’s rail subsidiaries, as part of the company’s vital programme of network upgrading and modernisation.

Works were carried out in live working depots so traffic management and careful planning were required to complete the operation without disrupting TfL’s day to day operations.

All contaminants including asbestos and oils were removed and disposed of in an environmentally responsible way. All other materials arising from the project were recycled and several larger sections of rolling stock carefully removed and transported to the London Transport Museum for historic displays to the public.

Staffing requirements: Working in a railway environment requires a high degree of health and safety knowledge and expertise and the use of suitably qualified and accredited personnel to carry out the works. Econ’s team included staff who met the following requirements: LUL/LUCAS, Depot Track Accustomed Persons, LU/LUA Protection Masters, LUL CCDO, LUL CPCS

Equipment/Plant Used: 22 tonne - 360 Excavator; Skip Lorries
