I found Austen’s management of the rail drop [at Folkestone on LWRT2] to be very good, especially given the minor issues that had to be dealt with on the day. Please pass on my thanks to both Austen and his team.

An excellent discussion was had with your site supervisor (Eddie O’Connor) who clearly lives to work (safely and effectively) and plainly instils this ethos in his team.
