Scottish Galvanizers collaborated with Network Rail in the redevelopment of a West Lothian station in a £3.5 million project.
The plant worked alongside Lanarkshire Welding Co. to galvanize 75 tonnes of steel to transform Livingston South Railway Station on the Shotts Line as part of the Network Rail Upgrade Plan.
The project involved the galvanizing of new platforms, parapet and trash screens along with aiding in the maintenance protection of new electric masts and stairs.
Brian Mallon, Network Rail programme manager for the project, explained: “Redeveloping Livingston South station is vital to the successful completion of our electrification project and the introduction of new faster, longer trains.
"We will do as much work as we possibly can all across the Shotts Line during the closure to maximise progress and reduce the need for further disruption.
“We appreciate the co-operation of the local community and thank them for their patience as we deliver this massive investment to upgrade the railway.”
The blockade lasted 10 days before the line reopened - enabling trains to travel between Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Central once more.
