Rail Platform Crossings

When carrying out essential maintenance and refurbishment works at railway stations, there is often a need to create temporary crossings between platforms. These crossing locations are used to provide safe access between platforms for both plant and pedestrians, minimising the time to pass between them. Each platform crossing is designed to meet the unique requirements of the station, including specific platform heights, spans, loading requirements and rail configurations. 


  • Lightweight, quick and easy to install / remove / store
  • Individually designed to suit platform heights and spans
  • Robust construction comprising Filcor with a plywood deck (upper surface)
  • Designed to suit station specific rail dimensions and configurations

The grade of Filcor (Expanded Polystyrene) used to manufacture each platform crossing can be varied to suit the loading requirements expected from pedestrians, plant and materials during its use.

The crossings are manufactured from a lightweight Filcor making them quick to position, remove and store during the on-going works.


Platform Crossings are designed to be a cost effective, temporary solution for providing access between rail station platforms during maintenance and refurbishment works.
