Just weeks after being named Supplier of the Year at the national Transport Awards, the Hull-based
rail infrastructure company has won the Rail Infrastructure/Possessions Team of the Year award at
the annual RailStaff Awards for the delivery of its Gravesend Station Re-modelling project.

work ethic, without which, we would not be able to deliver the brilliant works we do and be

The improvements have created a more modern infrastructure for rail users in Kent.
The RailStaff Awards started in 2007 with an aim at recognising the great work that the people who
work in the industry do.
