Yapton Crossing

Customer Objective

To renew the life expired level crossing lighting and column facilities at Yapton Lane, Chichester Station and Basin Road in order to ensure a strengthened degree of public and passenger safety.

Linbrooke Project Scope

Linbrooke worked with local authorities to negotiate road closures and diversions and subsequently executed ‘letter-drops’ in the area to ensure locals were aware of all relevant works and succeeding ramifications. Due to the close proximity of residential and commercial properties, Linbrooke further designed, produced and fitted bespoke baffles (light shields) in order to remove nocturnal glare and maintain Network Rail’s required light distribution.

Linbrooke’s scope of works included:

• Survey and design of level crossing lighting systems and SMTH signalling design

• Replacement of existing level crossing lighting systems in their entirety

• Installation of new level crossing lighting – inclusive of power supply

• Design and installation in order for new equipment to be maintained without the need for possession protection

• Installation of new access points and hard-standings which offer suitable protection to maintainers from live traffic

• Installation of new cable routes inclusive of under track crossings (UTX)

• Production and provision of records to reflect all works delivered by this project

• Recovery of all redundant assets resulting from the project

• Responsible disposal of all redundant materials

Linbrooke worked diligently under the challenging circumstances and time constraints to ensure that the level crossing lighting renewals project was completed successfully – with minimal disruption to the surrounding parties.
