Victoria Road Waste Transfer Station

Project Description

Victoria Road Waste Transfer Station handles over 150,000 tonnes of waste each year. Waste is collected from homes in the London Boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon. The waste leaves the site on trains heading for subsequent processing at another facility.

After the vehicle carrying the waste is weighed the contents are tipped into bunkers in the tipping hall. A crane moves the waste to load it into compaction equipment. The waste is compacted in the containers and then put on to the train. Trains leave the site up to 4 times a week transporting waste; each train is 1/3 of a mile long and carries almost 1000 tonnes of waste.

The improvements include:

  • Container Storage Area
  • Bulky Waste Reception Facility
  • Overhead Signal Gantry
  • Automated door into the Tipping Building
  • Unloading Bunkers
  • Control Room
  • Rainwater Harvesting Tank and site-wide drainage infrastructure upgrades
  • Electrical infrastructure upgrades including a new main LV Switchboard
  • Fire Suppression system
  • Odour control system
  • CCTV system

Our scope on the project included the following services:

  • Design and development of a bespoke dynamic, electronic O&M manual system, which was available online throughout the entire project duration, constantly being developed and updated as soon as new documentation was received.
  • The design of the O&M Manual made it easy for project team and operatives to find information for specific work packages and process areas. With the O&M being available online, everyone connected with the project could see progress at all times and always had the very latest versions of documents and drawings.
