The National Transport Awards, supported by the Department for Transport and Transport Focus are about recognising excellence in transport and rewards innovation and progress for transport initiatives and projects.
We are pleased to announce that Network Rail has awarded Colas Rail’s Rail Services division the nationwide Rail Grinding contract for the next 3 years. The contract amounts to a revenue of £20m per annum.
No trains in or out of Euston… That was the BBC news headline every Friday for 3 weekends in August this year. The S&C Alliance Team at Euston took full advantage of the planned closures and delivered complex Overhead Line, Track and Civils works – all of it critical enabling works for High Speed 2.
The British Safety Council has awarded the S&C South Alliance the Sword of Honour. This prestigious award celebrates and rewards organisations that have reached the pinnacle of health and safety management.
Our S&C South Alliance Anglia team took part in volunteering at St Francis Hospice in Romford. St Francis Hospice provides free care and support for those with life-limiting illnesses, as well as their families, friends and carers.
Colas Rail has been short-listed in three categories for next year’s Rail Business Awards.
Colas Rail is proud to continue our commitment to developing our people by joining The 5% Club, an industry led initiative focussed on driving momentum into the recruitment of apprentices, graduates and sponsored students.
Our Careers and Development Team are part of the Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network (ADCN), which champions apprenticeships and diversity amongst employers and encourages people from underrepresented groups, including those with disabilities, women and members of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, to consider apprenticeships.
The spirit of giving is definitely present at our HQ in London. The team worked together on each floor to fill donation boxes for The Trussell Trust, Westminster Food bank, donating food, drink and non-perishable goods for those less fortunate.
The National Rail Awards is one of the most anticipated events in the industry and this year’s event proved to be a successful one for Colas Rail UK.
