For phase 3 of the Maidenhead town centre upgrade, we improved the station forecourt area.

The programme of works aimed to improve the interchange between trains and other forms of transport.

It has created better walking and cycling links between the station and the town centre for the residents of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.


All civils works associated with the break-out of existing car park, and installation of new car park outside Maidenhead train station. Works included

  • break out
  • disposal
  • excavation
  • drainage
  • ducting
  • foundations
  • paving.

Solving the challenges of a tricky project

Our team collaborated with the client to overcome a number of challenges in the station forecourt upgrade project. These successes included

  • identifying and managing unforeseen services
  • repositioning trees, planters and lamp columns, taking into consideration existing services while maintaining the aesthetics of the original design
  • regrading the station entrance to give easier access for station visitors.

Our thorough testing and materials management processes minimised the amount of contaminated spoil produced.

The disabled car park and taxi rank now benefit from brand-new granite paving, featuring a non-slip and scratch-resistant surface. With careful stone-matching and attractive patterns, it will look good throughout the year.

The completed area has a beautiful high-end finish which will be extremely durable.

The final result has surpassed expectations.

Maidenhead station now boasts an attractive sweep of stone paving past benches, trees and lamp columns. Travellers can arrive by bus, bicycle or taxi, with a dedicated disabled parking area and a small drop-off zone.

This project followed on from Maidenhead phase two, which included upgrading areas of the town near the station, including the base of the historic clock tower.
