D2 Rail is delighted to announce its early involvement with the TRU West of Leeds Alliance, helping create the programme and support constructability through the design phase of the infrastructure option selection process for this route.
The project, which covers upgrades to civils, track, railway systems and electrification aims to deliver faster, longer, more frequent and more reliable services across the north of England, from Manchester and Liverpool via Leeds.
The Alliance, which is between Network Rail, Amey, BAM Nuttall and Arup, is working collaboratively from the earliest stages on the development of potential infrastructure options for the Transpennine Route Upgrade. D2 Rail’s Information Management team have also supported and co-ordinated the submission of the final options through to the Department for Transport (DfT) for consideration in December of this year.
The works are part of the Great North Rail Project, and Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan.
Tim Ketteringham, Alliance Manager, West of Leeds, said: “The Transpennine Route Upgrade is a major programme of rail improvement that will have a real and lasting impact on people and communities in the North of England for generations to come: connecting towns and cities, improving journey times and supporting economic growth. I am thrilled to be part of the Alliance of companies that is working together as one team to deliver this step change in rail travel.”
D2 Rail’s Project Controls Director Simon Blair, who is working with the Alliance, also added: “Our involvement in this Alliance is testament to the collaborative nature of our people and the expertise provided on previous projects. Our multi disciplinary programme management offering includes Planning and Scheduling, Project Controls, Constructability Advice, Information Management and Visualisations.
