California Platforms


Too many cars, too much movement, not enough space and only one track on which to move it all?


That’s a pretty common problem in the tunneling business where space is at a premium and where men and equipment keep a busy pace. EVEREST has been supplying the solution for many years in the form of its California Platforms. California Platforms ingeniously add another track to allow passing of rolling equipment and handle mucking or concreting traffic.



Linked together as one unit, the sections of the EVEREST California Platforms are mobile.


Resting on the concreted side of the tunnel, the platforms can be moved to the point of greatest traffic or against excavation. When it’s time to roll on with the work, air-bags raise the entire platform as one unit enabling it to be towed to its new position.


Solid steel members along either side of the platform support the heavy loads. Alignment pins on the end of each section keep the track aligned.The platform is equipped with a switch and ramp at each end.


Each California Platform is Custom built to your requirements, your tunnel and your satisfaction.
