High Motive set to support vital rail works over holiday season

High Motive are set to support the estimated 11,000 engineers working to improve our rail lines over the busy holiday season.

Network Rail says the upgrades are part of a record-breaking £200m investment programme that begins after the last train runs on Christmas Eve with more than 11,000 engineers will be working across the holidays.The implementation of new platforms, flyovers, junctions and station facilities are expected to make the network more reliable for the new year.

Network Rail's chief executive, Mark Carne, has said: "I know that passengers can be frustrated by disruption, but people appreciate that carrying out this work at a time when the railway is less busy reduces overall disruption."

High Motive will be supporting the rail industry's efforts by supplying crucial safety critical communications and on-site radio engineers through-out the Christmas period.

Before and After: Dawlish railway line back on track

In February this year a series of storms led to a huge breach in the sea wall at Dawlish in Devon and severely damaged the coast-hugging track. In total, about 260ft (79m) of sea wall was destroyed by high tides and stormy seas causing a stretch of railway to collapse.

Since the storms High Motive have worked alongside National Rail, supplying vital equipment such as DECT Com II for RRv’s as well as installing wide area radio systems on site for both BAM and AMCO as work to restore the missing track continued.

The main 300ft-long breach has now been repaired with nearly 5,000 tonnes of concrete and 150 tonnes of steel, and a new 600ft-long section of track has been ready-built for installation. The final restoration work continues.

The Floods that have Plagued much of the West in recent months persisted throughout the 4 week Blockade Down at Tiverton, Taunton and Whiteball Tunnel. Despite these adverse conditions we kept full site communication going, including the radio system providing coverage throughout the flooded tunnel.

As soon as the job was complete the system was moved down to Dawlish to help with the re-building work there.
