Two D2 Rail team members nominated for RailStaff awards

Two of D2 Rail’s key employees, Simon Blair and Alesha Hancock, have been nominated in the Rail Person of the Year category in this year’s RailStaff Awards.

The RailStaff Awards are designed to honour the people and teams in the industry that go above and beyond to make the UK’s rail industry one of the best in the world.

Both Alesha and Simon have played vital roles in D2’s work on the Northern Hub Alliance’s Ordsall Chord project, enabling some of the most important rail work to be undertaken in the UK in recent years. The project will see 300 metres of new track installed, creating a link between Manchester city centre’s main train stations for the first time.

As the project’s Planning and Project Controls lead, Simon has led and integrated multi-disciplinary project controls; providing management information to support decision making at the right time. In addition, he was at the heart of developing, designing and delivering a number of ‘best in class’ approaches to ensure collaboration up and down the supply chain on this project.

Alesha took up the role of the Alliance’s Integrated Construction Planner for the Ordsall Chord. Since beginning her role, she has played a crucial part in identifying and implementing improved planning processes across the project.

Simon and Alesha are both highly valued members of the D2 Rail team, and we’re incredibly proud of their contributions to the railway industry. To vote for Alesha, click here, and to vote for Simon, click here.
