Osborne Brightens up Royal Station
As the days grow shorter, Osborne is modernising Windsor & Eton Riverside Station in Berkshire, re-wiring the Grade 1 listed building, providing improved brighter and cleaner lighting inside the ticket hall and along the platforms.
As part of the ongoing £250million, five year One Team Wessex framework, Osborne is replacing the ‘yellow’ sodium lights, with new fresh clean ‘white’ LEDs giving the ornate station a new lease of life and improving visibility for passengers.
Through careful planning with Network Rail at the very start of the project, Osborne has been able to safely use a mobile elevating platform during the day to replace the bespoke light fittings without compromising safety or passenger flow, saving both time and money.
Simon Langley, Station Manager at Windsor and Eton Riverside, said: “The feedback from the staff regarding the way Osborne is conducting the work has been excellent. They are all friendly, considerate and work safely. The new light fittings are excellent and from my point of view it has been a pleasure working with Osborne.”
Peter Palmer, Site Manager for Osborne said: “It’s been great working at Windsor & Eton Station. On the face of it the job seems simple, but the real reward has been to really brighten up such a beautiful and ornate station with these new lights.”
