Case Study: Ffestiniog Railway Station, Porthmaddog

Internal/external asbestos removal, repair & encapsulation works

Client: Welsh Highland Railways

Asbestos Services (UK) were appointed as licenced asbestos removal contractor to carry out removal of High risk asbestos insulation board (externally) and carry out repair & encapsulation works of asbestos materials (internally).

Asbestos Services Wirral, Merseyside, Liverpool


The Ffestiniog Railway Society exists to support the oldest independent railway in the world – now a historic and world-class tourist attraction.
The works were planned as part of a refurbishment scheme to extend the rear kitchen area and make way for a more modern larger cafe/eating area to accommodate the growing number of tourists who visit this beautiful, scenic part of the world.

The high risk removal works were programmed with an external enclosure to be erected to the rear soffit areas. Full enclosure set up was created externally and direct DCU connection fixed to the enclosure. Site fencing was erected as a barrier around the trackside enclosure to warn third parties of the ongoing works.

Once again all asbestos insulation board was carefully removed and a full decontaminate clean of the enclosure area prior to being deemed safe for re-occupation by UKAS analyst - various short duration repair works were also carried out within the internal of the building.

The contract was carried out over a one week period to complete with a team of four operatives based in Porthmaddog, with works completed within timescales and budget.
