Rail division commences three-year maintenance programme with Govia Thameslink Railway
Press Release - November 2020
SEE Services is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a three-year contract to carry out a ‘Passenger Benefit’ refurbishment and upgrade programme at stations managed and operated by GTR (Govia Thameslink Railway). This extensive project includes a variety of works ranging from repairs to platform infrastructure and furniture, to the maintenance and enhancement of buildings and the installation of Mechanical and Electrical assets.
GTR is a partnership between the Go-Ahead Group and Keolis and the UK’s largest rail franchise. It includes Southern, Thameslink, Great Northern and Gatwick Express and operates a total of 239 stations that handle 24% of Britain’s rail journeys.
SEE’s package of works focusses on three of GTR’s lines: from Harpenden to Flitwick (eight stations), Amberley to Worthing (nine stations) and Banstead to Wimbledon Chase (nine stations). Additional schemes have been implemented at Potters Bar, Ashwell and Morden stations, together with a number of the rail operator’s depots, where SEE’s teams will carry out further refurbishment and maintenance work.
SEE Services Managing Director Pat Davey is delighted the company has secured this long-term programme with GTR and is confident the Rail Division teams will deliver exactly what the customer is looking for:
“Our specialist rail teams are well-versed in schemes that require a wide range of works across a multitude of sites. They know what it takes when it comes to working with our rail-industry clients and understand the importance of working to timetables, carrying out tasks in public areas and the health and safety requirements involved.
“Long-terms projects such as this enable us to work closely with our clients and thereby provide the best possible outcome for all concerned. Consequently, we are keen to attract similar contracts where we can partner with operators to help with the ongoing refurbishment of the UK rail network’s assets and infrastructure.”
