Case Study:

Sunningdale Level Crossing

Sunningdale Level Crossing Case StudyNewgate (Newark) Ltd are excited to see the continued deployment at Sunningdale Level Crossing of their newly developed Level Crossing Barrier Machine and associated Protection Cage technology, which have both been granted Product Approval by Network Rail for trial on several projects in the UK.

With more than 35 years’ experience with Barriers and continuous investment in R&D, Newgate (Newark) Ltd have industry leading strength within the barrier and gate security market.

Atkins – a member of SNC-Lavalin Group were awarded a multi-disciplinary contract for design & installation works to re-new the level crossing at Sunningdale, which falls within Phase 2 of the Feltham & Wokingham re-signalling Project. The overall Feltham & Wokingham re-signalling project covers the renewal of all signalling assets, with delivery broken down into six separate phases.

Within the early works scope of Phase 2, Sunningdale MCB-CCTV Level Crossing was subject to a full level crossing renewal and was successfully completed on 01st November 2021. The scope encompassed life extension works with additional barrier repositioning and carriageway realignment works to deliver a compliant level crossing solution to Network Rail.

Newgate have been working in partnership with Atkins for several years to develop and supply a new state of the art Level Crossing Barrier solution with improved reliability to reduce down time and whole lifecycle cost as part of the Network Rail drive of “Design for Reliability”.

Newgate (Newark) Ltd NGR18000 Rail Barrier has carried out more than three Million operations to date in our inhouse testing facilities and is designed to fit the current “legacy” barrier machine footprint without the need for expensive ground works.

To compliment this our Newgate (Newark) Ltd NGR18000 Rail Barrier Protection Cage has been designed to be easily retro fitted to existing BR843 machines, enabling you to eliminate the current hazards due to moving sidearms and balance weights within a very short time frame.
