As predicted at the turn of the year, Metrail continues to deliver a very busy programme of work across the country.

As a specialist supplier of concrete repairs, waterproofing and expansion joints on four separate framework contracts across the National Highways network Metrail teams are keeping pace with an expanding work programme.

A significant number of schemes we are working on are associated with the UK’s motorway network.

The M62 at Scammonden, the M4 at Chieveley, the M5 at Almondsbury (Junction 15) , the M2 at Faversham, the M3 at Cox’s Rough  and a number of other locations.

At Eurotunnel work is continuing on our framework contract to replace worn out expansion joints on the loading ramps to the cross-channel shuttle service.

New vans, plant and equipment ordered last year are now on site and helping to deliver our expanding work programme.

A new head office operation, strategically based in Tunbridge Wells in Kent, provides ongoing support to our site teams and good connectivity to London and rest of the country.

The Bridges 2024 conference and exhibition in Coventry was a success for Metrail and we look forward to participation in the LCRIG Innovation Festival at Stoneleigh Park in July and Highways UK at the NEC in October. Do come and visit us at these upcoming events.

In particular, it is worth mentioning progress on our work at Wentbridge on the A1 in Yorkshire where the concrete viaduct bridge which opened in 1961, needs several essential repairs identified by National Highways.  As work has progressed further inspection of the structure has created additional work. Metrail, as one of the specialist contractors working on the bridge, is providing ongoing support to carry out concrete repairs, joint replacement and waterproofing as the work scope changes.

Metrail Manging Director, Martyn Sherwood, commented “We are delighted to be working closely with our key customer, National Highways, to deliver long term maintenance solutions for the UK road network”
