Working with the contractors who formed the Staffordshire Alliance, Holemasters provided concrete deconstruction engineering work for the eventual improvement in performance and reliability of the West Coast Rail main line in the Stafford area.

The project included extensive diamond and percussive drilling for the installation of cill beam anchors together with floor, track and wire sawing to enable the removal of bridge decks.  There was also a requirement for Brokk 100 to break signal post foundations in close proximity to the live track

The scheme is part of Network Rail’s £40bn Railway Upgrade Plan, which has also seen new modern, more reliable signalling installed.
