Milton Precast go all out for the Kent Hospice

Staff and customers of Milton Precast joined 60 teams in the 'It's a Knockout' charity event on Sunday 15th May at Mote Park in Maidstone in aid of the Heart of Kent Hospice.

The Heart of Kent Hospice is based in Aylesford and offers specialist end of life care for people facing the challenge of a life-limiting illness and support for their families.  With these services costing over £4m each year to run, it depends on the £3m a year that is raised from charity events.

Milton Precast would like to thank everyone who has sponsored and supported them in raising around £1000.00 for such a great cause.

Lllandudno Railway Station

Lllandudno Railway Station

Milton Precast has supplied L Shape retaining walls to Network Rail’s Llandudno Railway Station in North Wales

The station, which is used by approximately 270,000 passengers each year, was built in 1892 and had become run down and partly derelict, however the £5million refurbishment will see a new frontage, ticket office, improved bus facilities and a 50 space car park being added to the station.

The project was funded by The Department of Transport, The Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund.

Transport Minister Carl Sargeant said: “The upgrade of Llandudno station is the first in a number of station improvements that the Welsh Government is supporting as we strive to make rail travel move comfortable and attractive to the public”.

Nottingham Tramways

Nottingham Tramways

When Milton Precast started the Nottingham Tramways project in December 2012, they were aware that the project would include 17.5km of new track and 28 new tram stops so wasn’t going to be a small order. Initially four different sizes of box culverts were to be manufactured: MC18.12 (102no), MC24.12 (169no), MC24.15 (224no) and MC36.15 (59no) all with dished invert internal profiles and many special units required throughout the runs.

Construction work was being undertaken by Taylor Woodrow and Alstom, in a joint venture on behalf of Tramlink Nottingham and due to the customer requirements the box culverts were made using timber extensions covered with 6mm steel plates to take the rigours of double casting four units per day.

Once completed, the tram network will consist of 51 tram stops, with the two new lines linking directly to Line One at Nottingham Station. The expanded tram network will visit 7 park and ride sites, providing service to approximately 23 million passengers a year.
