SWGR has been selected by Network Rail Scotland to provide possession management services throughout the route via a competitive tender process, allowing it to build on its previous 32 years providing safe and high quality services on the railways.
The infrastructure services provider has placed a huge emphasis on creating a strong safety ecosystem, efficient ways of working and multiskilling its colleagues to provide an even greater level of service for its clients.
This, coupled with SWGR’s Safe Together ethos, continues to innovate in order to improve safety and reliability in frontline railway services. This has been recognised by the industry through its listing as a winner in the Scottish Engineering Safety Awards and a finalist in both the Safety and Health Excellence Awards 2022 and the Rail Business Awards 2021.
Alongside this, SWGR has also commenced Possession Management services in the North West region, covering Manchester, Liverpool, Lancashire and Cumbria. After a competitive tender process, as well as a clear and tangible evidence of a strong and experienced company with safety at its heart, SWGR is providing its renowned services in more regions than ever before.
Stuart Munro, Head of Delivery – Scotland, said: “We are humbled to have been selected as the supplier for the possession management works in Scotland and look forward to building on our success on our possession management works.
“Everyone within our team has worked tremendously hard to do things differently to bring positive change to the UK’s frontline infrastructure market and provide a service to our customer that not only gets the job done but goes above and beyond to deliver a solution that benefits Network Rail, supports job creation in the future, and supports the local communities we serve.
“Our success comes through collaboration, and through this approach with Network Rail, we look forward to continuing a tremendous relationship.”
