CPMS Attend The National Rail Awards
13 October 2015
The National Rail Awards took place on the 17th September with CPMS being one of the many leading companies within the rail industry in attendance.
CPMS were highly commended by the judges at the awards for the implementation and management of Coasting on the Great Eastern.
CPMS worked closely with Network Rail, the supply chain and the TOC to develop a safe methodology for allowing OLE work to be undertaken with trains still passing on the adjacent open lines. By isolating the section alongside the wiring team, trains effectively 'coast' or roll passed the worksite, allowing the work to take place safely whilst also keeping passengers on the trains safe. This step change approach has now seen over 500 trains coast past worksites, allowing the critical GE OLE renewal work to continue.
