GMC Utilities Group has developed a close working relationship with the Rail Procurement Agency having undertaken work on behalf of the agency since its inception.
The RPA is an independent state agency established in December 2001 under the Transport (Railway Infrastructure) Act, 2001. The RPA is responsible for the procurement of railway and infrastructure systems ensuring the provision of light rail and metro infrastructure and high quality passenger services.
Over the last decade we have undertaken a substantial amount of investigative trenching projects to facilitate route design and planning of each of the proposed lines. In 2002, we undertook a multi million utility diversion and drainage project for the Luas Line B. The project was completed successfully and on programme which was a considerable achievement when taking into account the combination of:
- the extent of the works,
- the time constraints
- and the considerable volumes of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The works were successfully completed between Peter’s Place to St Stephen’s Green in Dublin. When both Luas Line A and B were completed and opened to the general public we successfully undertook extensive platform alterations on the St Stephen’s Green stop as well as installing ticket validators and communication ducts on other fully operational platforms.
In the recent past GMC Utilities Group has undertaken a variety of projects relating to the proposed Metro North and BXD Lines. We have also carried out further investigative works on the Green and Red Luas Lines that are currently operating.
Other examples of the diverse capabilities of the GMC Utilities Group are the construction of the Dundrum LUAS stop passenger access lift from the Bus Interchange up to the platform and the replacement the of roof of the listed building located adjacent to the Dundrum platform. The Group has also carried out platform upgrades for Irish Rail and constructed Quality Bus Corridors for the Dublin Councils.
One other high profile contract the GMC Utilities Group played a role in was the Dublin Port Tunnel. The scope of works included the installation of various diameter water mains at both entrances to the Port Tunnel, surface water drainage, manhole construction, ducting installation and associated chamber at the Port side of the tunnel, construction of concrete footpaths and grading of sub – base areas prior to surfacing works by other parties..
