Low Moor Railway Platform Drainage Solution

A railway station has been present at Low Moor since 1848. The station underwent £10.8M of renovations, including accessible platforms, waiting shelters and a new car park with 128 spaces.

The new station brings extra connectivity between Bradford, the rest of the country such as London, Leeds and other regions on the Calder Valley line.

Drainage requirements: stability, longevity and durability

Surface drainage was required for the platforms for efficient rainwater management and the prevention of flooding during heavy rainfall. With over 50,000 passengers (per year) expected to use Low Moor Railway Station, the specified drainage system needed to be durable enough to withstand moderate foot traffic.

As some of the channels would be installed nearer the outer edge of the platform, the system required non-corrosive gratings, as foot traffic would be minimal within these areas. Non-treated ductile iron gratings would oxidise, leaving a non-aesthetic appeal.

Colin Taff, HAURATON Area Sales Manager – North East, proposed the RECYFIX PRO surface drainage system.
