Supporting Network Rail over Christmas

Freightliner was, once again, instrumental in supporting Network Rail in the delivery of a successful programme of engineering works over the Christmas and New Year period.

Haulage supplied nationwide

Running 53 engineering trains, Freightliner supplied haulage for Network Rail worksites on a nationwide scale, hauling materials to replace and upgrade rail infrastructure including ballast, rail, sleepers and machinery, helping keep Britain moving on the rails.

The festive period brought a busy and challenging possession workload for Network Rail, including major works at Milton Keynes, Holloway, Battersea Pier, Westbury and in several Scottish locations, all of which were delivered without incident and on time thanks to Freightliner’s detailed planning and focus.

The work at Milton Keynes has even exceeded expectations with line speeds handed back at 125 mph rather than the anticipated 60 mph, resulting in faster journeys for passengers on the West Coast Main Line from Euston.
