This event has finished

The Liverpool Lime St scheme delivered a capacity increase of three extra services per hour by creating two new platforms, extending platform 10 to for 11 car units, extending platforms 1 and 2 for eight car units (previously four car).  Platforms 3 to 6 have been realigned to increase turnout speed and to provide safer wider access for passengers.  All the signalling has been renewed with the signalling control moved to the Manchester Rail Operating Centre (MROC).  This equates to a 100 signalling equivalent unit (SEU) renewal.  4 km of plain line track and 24-point ends have been renewed, along with the associated overhead line equipment.
An overview of the objectives and benefits of Liverpool Lime Street Re-Modelling Project and delivery model will be provided.  This will be followed by an explanation of design integration processes and project staging strategy development.  Finally a more in-depth view of track planning, delivery and challenges will be given.

The event is shared with the IRSE and PWI.
