Sharing our successes

Assured and safe delivery at Horley​

Congratulations to our Rail Services team for safely and successfully opening the new public footbridge in Horley, for passengers to enjoy.

The original life expired footbridge which was originally built in the Victorian era over the Brighton Mainline, had been removed during a 24-hour possession over Christmas. The team have since been carrying out the final elements including painting the steelwork, brickworks repairs to the landing piers and installing mesh.

Despite several challenges including unexpected severe winter weather conditions, the team have worked hard in collaboration with our supply chain to deliver on time and to programme.

To help minimise disruption to passengers, works were planned and completed during night shifts. Additionally, the team made sure to keep the local community well-informed about the planned works through signage and regular communication, including delivering letter to nearby houses.

Well done to everyone involved for safely and efficiently delivering the works for our customer.​

The upgrades are already making a huge impact to the travelling public.​

”Stakeholder management was fantastic and end result is first class, well done, and thanks to Octavius for this job.​”

Thomas Cowie, Network Rail Programme Manager.
