Our first project for Network Rail involved us carrying out the Civil elements of this Re-signalling Scheme, which included ground investigation, screw piling with Y Frame install and the installation of the new signal and ground signal, also the removal of the old existing signal structure, with tight delivery times for the completion of the works. We worked closely with the Delivery team of Network Rail from the Carlisle Delivery Unit in Cumbria, we used RRV's for the duration of this Project, which we procured through our supply chain and managed on site.

Over 3 weekends (1 Saturday and 2 Sundays) we carried out all works safely and with no issues, and most importantly no incidents or accidents, on the final Sunday shift the new signal was installed and the existing removed, Network Rail commissioned both new signals ready for use.
