UK rail business gains further Network Rail recognition
Global Rail Construction Ltd. has been awarded a second consecutive Network Rail Star Award for its exceptional approach to the management and control of health, safety, welfare and environmental practices at its sites on the Great Western Electrification Project (GWEP).
One of the largest single infrastructure projects of its kind, GWEP will provide more reliable, greener and quieter journeys for thousands of passengers. Around 1,000 kilometres of railway will be electrified between London and Cardiff for the introduction of new Intercity Express trains by Hitachi.
This major project will see Global Rail Construction Ltd. using its vast rail engineering experience to help deliver infrastructure works to bring GWEP into service, with most of the works being completed during the current control period.
Global Rail Construction Ltd is part of the Global Infrastructure Group and is a leading UK provider of design and build services to clients in the rail and transportation sector.
Owner and Managing Director, Marco Lombardelli, said: “This is testament to the operational cultures that we have developed, and working practices that our staff and supply chain have fully embraced, and this recognition is richly deserved. Having been issued a full Principal Contractors Licence, we intend to continue to work hard to ensure that we meet and exceed both our own and our clients’ expectations.
“The last three months have been incredibly exciting, with a worldwide rebrand of our UK and overseas activities, under the banner of the Global Infrastructure Group. I look forward to reporting further successes in the future.”
