Caring for our new lineside neighbours in Battersea 

Octavius team with Network Rail colleagues at Sheepcote Lane

Ahead of commencing construction activities at Sheepcote Lane in Battersea, our Rail Services team dedicated an evening to engaging with local residents. Our colleagues informed them about the forthcoming works, discussing any potential impacts, and outlining how we will be minimising disruption as much as possible. This session also provided an opportunity for residents to ask questions and express any concerns they may have had.

In the coming months we will begin constructing a Road Rail Access Point (RRAP), for Network Rail. This will allow critical rail plants to be transported from the road delivery vehicles, unloaded, taken up the ramp and placed safely onto the rail tracks. This essential project will enhance accessibility and safety for Network Rail maintenance teams, enabling them to efficiently carry out renewal works on the infrastructure of the railway tracks serving the Waterloo and Clapham Junction lines.

Well done and thank you to the team for giving up your time and proactively engaging with and supporting our lineside neighbours.
