Integrated Multidisciplinary Rail Services

The Greater West Program, Wales – GRIP 5 & 6 OLE Design and Construction Engineering Support

Network Rail are electrifying one of Britain’s oldest and busiest railways, providing greener, more reliable journeys and improving connections across southern England and South Wales: London and Bristol, including Cardiff, Newbury and Oxford.

Due to the success of our project engineering and construction service to Network Rail on The Greater West on TVA, Hedson Rail and our expert team of design and site engineers and construction management has now moved west into the Wales part of the project.

Hedson Rail’s “site support” offers businesses, consultants and projects expertise and focus on the interface between construction works and design. Our teams of CREs, Design Engineers and CAD Technicians provide a self-assured service in the review and resolution to both simple and complex challenges that the construction teams face. The dedicated team ensures that the turnaround times for responses are rapid and cause minimal delays to the construction.

The service in Wales now incorporates experienced OLE Project and Field engineering and supervision to support Network Rail and the contractors when challenges are experienced.  This ensures the information being fed back to the designers is accurate and complete as well as reporting on construction works progress.

GRIP5 design review with our OLE design team based on site also forms part of our service and demonstrates our capability to provide a fully integrated service from design through to construction.

As part of Hedson Rail’s strategy in Wales and as our service expands we are working with local schools, colleges and networks to recruit locally and train and develop people within Wales.
