Bringing together the supply chain to ‘celebrate the very best of 2017’s achievements in the rail industry’, AmcoGiffen are thrilled to have been shortlisted for 3 of this year’s Rail Partnership Awards!

As finalists in the ‘Best Project (small) of 2017’ and the ‘Putting Passengers First’ categories for our works on the Liverpool Central Tunnel High Level Neck programme, we delivered an innovative and impressive solution that involved providing a new concrete lining to a 165m section of Liverpool’s Central Tunnel, while ensuring that trains and passengers were able to pass below, entirely unaffected!

Gaining further recognition for our works on the Grade II listed structure - River Witham Bridge - we have also been shortlisted for the ‘Preserving the History of the Railway’ category. Replacing the life expired, under-strength bridge with a new, modernised structure, while innovatively cladding it with heritage-rich box girders, we successfully delivered a safer, more modern structure, while maintaining the history of the Lincolnshire railway.

We’re already looking forward to finding out the results at the awards dinner in Birmingham on the 7th of June! Find out more here…
