Osborne Scoops Gold Accolade for Bridge Replacement Work

Osborne has scooped a gold accolade from Network Rails’ Route to Gold initiative, for its work on the Fairfield Road Bridge replacement in Wandsworth.

Route to Gold is a performance measurement initiative which aims to promote collaborative working behaviours, reduce costs caused by re-work and embed a culture of continuous improvement within the rail industry.

Over the past few years, Osborne have been awarded a number of gold accolades from Network Rail for their work at Virginia Water and Chertsey in Surrey, as well as a string of silver awards for their work at other rail jobs, across the South East.

Network Rail scores their supply chain on the quality of products delivered, on projects and the behaviours associated with these. This is measured through information collated by the Network Rail Construction Managers.

The Osborne Wandsworth Team, worked tirelessly over Easter during a 100 hour blockade, to safely and successfully replace the life-expired Fairfield Road Under-bridge.

The original four track bridge was replaced with four separate single span steel “U-decks” – all made possible through our collaborative working, the commitment and professionalism of all our people, including our customer and specialist supply partners.

Enormous thanks and congratulations to the team for their efforts, dedication and professionalism. Through exemplar planning and execution they continue to raise the bar, achieving a huge amount of high quality work without incident or accident.

Keith Midwinter, Senior Construction Manager, Network Rail said; “The mid London site had very little room for manoeuvre with time sensitive road closures that were completed with no problems. The short term project of 4.5 days on site was completed without any injuries and within the timescale. Additional works which were due completion in future possessions were also completed. Well done to the team.”
