Ashford International Team Go the Extra Mile

Osborne, along side their supply chain partners have been working at Ashford International station in Kent.

Our highly collaborative team are proving that they are truly united for the benefit of the rail customers and local community.  They have received positive comments not only for their great work but for their rapid actions when confronted with a terrible situation.

Steve Smith of Keoghs and our Ashford International Osborne Site Team including Arron Dolan, Martyn Grout and Gary Harris responded swiftly to potentially save the life of a woman who was preparing herself to jump off the station platform onto the live railway.

Steve Smith raised the initial call and the team raised the alarm to Station staff.  South-eastern Staff and the British Transport Police intervened and prevented what could have been a horrific incident.

Positive feedback has also been received from our customer following a visit to the Platform 3 gauging works, a true testament to the way that Keogh and Osborne are working together to ensure a successful project for all:-

“The work site access onto the International Platform 3 was especially very well controlled as was the access into the site project office: First class and best practice.
All workforce had correct PPE and were wearing gloves and glasses.  The worksite was tidy and well maintained.  Well done.”
