The volunteer day saw a clean up of the area in order to bring it back into action as a prime stabling point for On Track Plant and serviceable materials.
During the volunteer day, the following tasks were carried out:
- Removal of portacabin stillage & steps
- Scrap removal (around 20 tonnes of scrap rail along with 55 serviceable G44 sleepers)
- De-vegetation of site
- Resighting of P-way Cabin/Stores
- Amassing/Organising of P-way materials
- Resighting of P-way Rail/long materials
- The installation of level grade throughout
- The installation of Armco Barrier and signage (denotes parking/materials store)
In order to keep the site tidy in the future, On Track Plant suppliers and Network Rail will put plans in place to carry out general maintenance along with routine inspections.
Colas Rail UK’s OTM Delivery Manager and CSR day organiser, Roger Nicholas said
“Working in collaboration with Network Rail to clean up and make this stabling point clean and tidy for our lineside neighbours and local environment is key to ensuring the safety of our staff, especially when working in night-time conditions.
“One of our core values at Colas Rail is to care for our employees, volunteering in this way not only helps the local environment but means that we reduce the risk of injury ensuring everyone gets to go home safe.”
