Network Rail Award Osborne Gold

All that glitters can indeed be golden as Osborne has been awarded gold honours from Network Rail, for its work at Withy Beds in Cobham, Surrey.

Osborne also scooped Silver site for its recent work at Compton Road Bridge in Surrey.

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. 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.

Withy Bed Bank Slip saw emergency embankment stabilisation works undertaken to clear a temporary speed restriction of 20mph at Withy Bed Bank. The project included 6,015 tonnes of imported stone, 77 tonnes total weight of sheet piles and 102 metres of drainage.

Wayne Badman, Construction Manager at Network Rail said; “The emergency works were completed in 12 weeks by the Osborne team and their supply chain partners. Throughout the works the team never compromised on quality or safety and successfully completed the works within the programme.”
