Constructed in the 1840’s Brentwood station serves the Great Eastern Main Line into Liverpool St London. On platform 4, the roof of the toilet and waiting room which was still used by MTR staff and passengers, had failed in many places and fallen into a severe state of disrepair, allowing water to ingress the building, resulting in the ceiling collapse to the facilities below.
During traffic hours and NWR possessions a fixed scaffold was erected, and the entire roof stripped back to the rafters and re-instated and localised repairs made to the chimney stacks and the plaster board ceilings of the toilets and waiting rooms before re-decoration.
Working closely with Crossrail, no disruption to train or pedestrian traffic was caused throughout the duration of these works.
