Raising the Bar on how Rail Projects are delivered

Osborne has been praised after a visit to a work site, over the festive break, by the CEO for Network Rail.
Osborne were working with Network Rail to renew a railway bridge in Bramley, Hampshire, as part of its multimillion pound Christmas upgrade programme.

The project was visited by Mark Carne, the CEO for Network Rail who gave Osborne the following feedback;

“Many thanks to you and the whole team for hosting our visit on Christmas Day. It was really fascinating to see the attention to detail, the excellent layout of the site and the good spirit and morale among the team. Brilliant! I was delighted to travel over the bridge this morning and to see the results of all your hard work. Well done to you all and thank you for your dedication and professionalism.”

This project, reinforced the importance of Osborne working over the Christmas period to help their customers.

This is high praise indeed, and reflects the excellent collaboration completed by the site team and supply chain in advance of the work.

The old bridge, which sat in 900 acres of Ministry of Defence (MoD) land, was around 150 years old and had reached the end of its serviceable life.

The new £1.9 million bridge, supporting the lines between Basingstoke and Reading, will improve the reliability for passengers and will reduce the amount of disruption caused by maintenance of the structure.
