Platform Stairs Refurbishment at Harpenden Station
Argent recently completed repairs and refurbishment of the stairs at Harpenden Station. The works were to three sets of stairs connecting the footbridge with the platforms.
The stairs were falling into disrepair with the nosing and the metal framework showing signs of rust.
All the treads and noseings had to be removed and taken back to bare metal and broken treads and noseings replaced before the application of new rust proof coating.
Finally the stairs were finished in the Railway Blue paint specified as seen in the pictures below of the finished work.
All works were carried at night to minimise disruption to the public although trains do run through the night at this station so measures had to be taken to ensure the safe and continued availability of the stairs during the period the works took place.
