Hedson Rail delivered a highly successful project in extremely complex and challenging conditions, not only with the technical aspects of the works but also with regards to environmental management, tunnel ventilation and movement monitoring. Lead by Hedson Rail senior management, the staged mobilisation was managed effectively to facilitate immediate planning and engineering compliance pre-construction.
Through involvement in this project and the wider programme, Hedson Rail has demonstrated its ability to support clients and projects with track construction services delivering high profile and time critical projects.
105% of the scope was delivered with an additional track renewal included during the blockade due to achieving programme efficiencies. The success of the project was due to the collaborative approach adopted by Babcock, Network Rail and Hedson Rail with zero accidents and incidents and full compliance within the extremely stringent environmental restrictions of the site.
