Overhead Platform Engineering Services for the MetroLink
LOCATION: St. Louis, MO
CLIENT: METRO (Bi-State Development Agency)
TWM’s structural engineers designed an overhead service platform at Metro’s Ewing Maintenance Facility. The project consisted of four platforms, each 90 feet long by 6 feet wide, on each side of track number 103. Each platform is attached to the ends of an existing 71 foot long platform creating two 251 foot long service platforms; one on each side of the track. This allows easy maintenance access for almost the entire length of three of Metro’s typical articulated light rail vehicles, and from both sides of the train cars. Stairways were relocated and others added as required by building codes.
