Ten trains per week help to build HS2 in UK
GB Railfreight (GBRf) and Rail Stone Solutions (RSS) won two contracts to support construction on the first phase of HS2. The deals, with HS2 contractors EKFB and BBV, will see GBRf join forces with RSS to deliver aggregates by rail to the high speed rail project’s main construction compounds.
The partnership between GBRf and RSS, running up to Christmas, will initially see up to 157 trains deliver 235,000 t of type 1 aggregate for the first phase of construction work for HS2.
Ten trains per week, conveying up to 77 t in 20 box wagons, will transport 1,500 t of product per train. This amounts 15,000 t delivered to site per week. (ben)
