We work with the construction industry's leading companies

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for the successful delivery of the full scope of the BTR [ballast track renewals] last weekend at Latimer Road. Your hard work and commitment made the weekend works a success. Well done, everybody.

Project manager – BTR team - Track Partnership

I would like to nominate the Westbourne Park VGC C644 team for a values award for collaboration.
Since joining the project Donal and Carlos have taken on works left by a previous contractor and vastly improved on the quality of the works, and delivered on their promises. Despite a very tight schedule and a restrictive site they have never compromised on safety and have ensured the team are empowered to speak up.
They encourage good communication and this is reflected in the engagement Crossrail has with the people on site. They have coordinated works with other contractors and deliveries without raising issues and just got on with the extra responsibility.
We have jointly spoken to all local businesses and given them the details for reporting concerns directly. This has been very well received and as yet in the six months on site nothing has been an issue with the community. They are open and honest, never over-report and tell it like it is.
I hope these guys are as valued internally by VGC as they are by Crossrail.
