Liverpool Lime Street Station Remodelling
Liverpool Lime Street is a main terminus station serving the city of Liverpool (UK) and a branch of the West Coast Main Line Service from London Euston, as well as for TransPenine Express trains. Opened in 1836, it is the oldest grand terminus mainline station still in use in the world.
Due to the ageing track, changes in standards, signals, rail usage and technology a £340m investment programme has already commenced, with the main bulk of the works taking place over 23 days in October 2017 and subsequent stages with completion in Summer of 2018.
Metisplan in partnership with SPI produced a fully logically linked and coordinated 4D model of all work trains moves into and around the work site and contractors work spaces along the 2Km route between Edge Hill and Liverpool Lime Street.
The Liverpool Lime Street 4D Programme became the Winner of Synchro Software Digital Construction Awards 2017 – Specialist Project Category.
Metisplan’s very own 4D Planner, Nathan Targett, was also recognised for his efforts and hard work in pushing the boundaries of 4D and Synchro Software within rail – for this he became Finalist in the Digital Construction 4D Planner of the Year UK 2017.
