Irish Rail accessibility works on track for Global Rail Services
Rail infrastructure contractor Global Rail Services, is progressing well with accessibility works at three railway stations on behalf of Irish Rail, having been awarded the project in August 2016.
Customers at Rathdrum, Mullinger and Leixlip Louisa Bridge Stations will soon be benefiting from Global Rail Services’ extensive experience in delivering construction solutions that enhance and improve their passenger experience.
The project is well on its way to completion, with key project milestones being consistently met and a high quality end product to match, Global Rail Services is certainly hitting the right notes in terms of managing and delivering the full suite of stakeholder expectations.
The works include complex in-situ civil engineering works, temporary works, roads and pavings, as well as rail engineering activities in respect of upgrading station platforms and railway pedestrian access.
