The challenge

PLURA Polydeck helped resolve the following issues with the use of our GRP platform system.


Our platforms allow for zero disruption to rail services or closures of the line.

Quick installation time

Our unique platform system allowed for complete station overhaul in under a month in rural Wales.

Wet surfaces

PLURA provides a near diamond hard, anti-slip surface as standard.

Fast installation

Our Platform allows for fast installation in the most remote locations in the UK.

The outcome

PLURAs products allowed for the station overhaul to be completed in under a month, in one of Wales’s most secluded stations, with no disruptions to rail service or closures to the line. The new station blends perfectly with other stations on the line and was perfect for the new increase in tourism.

Advantages of GRP

GRP is a great replacement for traditional platforms, with many benefits.

We are delighted with the transformation that Polydeck’s flooring has given the station. Not only does it look better but it performs as promised.

We have received some positive comments from regular walkers who say the newly installed boardwalk provides a smart, safe and Clean route through an otherwise difficult part of the trail.
