Colas Rail mobilised 4 locomotives fitted with miniature snow ploughs across the network to help keep the UK moving during the harsh weather conditions caused by the beast from the east.

With the vast majority of planned engineering works being cancelled, we supported our client in snow clearance in order to keep the UK moving.

We have received high praise indeed from Paul Gilbert, Operations Director at Network Rail who said:

“Our suppliers have been extremely helpful in providing resources. The biggest challenge has been getting drivers and support staff to the trains and I would like to say a huge thank you to all involved. In particular Colas Rail and DRS have performed fantastically well and reacted quickly and professionally to our emerging needs.”

A huge thank you to our teams out there trying to make a difference.
