Thameslink: Bridge Deck Prefabrication at Luton
The core requirement at Luton station was to extend the Thameslink Platforms to facilitate the introduction of the new 12-car Class 700 rolling stock; however, this required major modifications to the bridges, track, signalling and the 25kV traction overhead line equipment.
The works at Luton were delivered to complete the remodelling of Luton station (at the country end) as part of Key Output 1. The bridge was replaced during the Easter possession of 2010 and marked the third and final stage of the project.
