“The Gospel Oak to Barking Electrification Project was one of Network Rail’s first formal pilot projects aiming to achieve net positive biodiversity meaning we created more habitat than what was lost during the works required for the newly electrified track. Our key habitat enhancement initiatives were located within the Walthamstow Wetlands (which is also a SSSI protected site) located directly adjacent to our work sites.
We achieved this success by working in close partnership with Sustainability Sciences Ltd and the London Wildlife Trust. Being a positive part of the community we work within, and seeing immediate and long term benefits for the community to enjoy, is a resounding legacy for us all to aspire towards when embarking on any delivery project” – Tim Galvani, Managing Director, CPMS Consulting
