D2’s Work Recognised by Transpennine Route Upgrade West of Leeds Alliance Project

It’s been a great start to the year for the D2 Rail team, our Planning lead Alesha Hancock has been awarded with employee of the period on the Transpennine Route Upgrade (TRU) West of Leeds Alliance project.  Alesha has been praised for her continued support of the Ground Investigation and Site Investigation teams.  She consistently goes above and beyond her planning role to manage and coordinate surveys and reports.  She instils Alliance values and behaviours within her role, having the courage to challenge ways of working and looking for the most efficient ways to manage the surveys and reports.

Alesha previously played a crucial part in ensuring the overall success of the Ordsall Chord project, leading on possession and work activity planning – introducing a number of improvements to processes – whilst also adding her backing as a supporter of Women in Rail.

Well done Alesha! Keep up the good work.

Along with Alesha’s win we have had five D2 Rail employees recognised by their peers on the TRU West of Leeds Alliance project for their hard work and dedication in their day-to-day roles on the project.  Well done to Chloe Brown, Glen Staunton, Rebecca Mercer, Sarah Barnes and Simon Blair.  It’s fantastic to see the D2 Rail team making such an impact on such a large programme of works.

Great work team!
