Safetymeasures for railstation Alkmaar

21 January 2021

Commissioned by ProRail, Anton Rail & Infra has placed a temporary steel construction under the roof of platform 2 at Alkmaar station. The current platform roof was no longer structurally safe for travelers. ProRail has chosen to reinforce the platform roof.

Measure and calculate

Harder Constructie- & Adviesbureau measured the frames for this project on location using the Total Station. With this device the concrete bases and steel construction have been drawn up exactly. In addition, detailed calculations of the steel structure were made and reinforcement for the concrete bases was calculated.

Adjustment of concrete foundations

Anton Bouw & Betontechniek has adapted and strengthened the concrete foundations here. Adjustments to existing structures always require a lot of extra effort. The bases are located under the platform, so each base is a surprise, often this deviates from the original drawing. This means that with the deployment of Loos Wapeningscentrale, we have made many adjustments to the work to make the reinforcement possible.

Thanks to the collaboration with Anton Constructiewerken, Anton Bouw & Betontechniek and Harder Constructie- & Adviesbureau, this project was successful.
