My dealings with the Axial team have always been positive and refreshing no more so than during my role as the Managing Director of the Midland Mainline Electrification Programme for the Carillion Powerlines Joint Venture.
They managed with utmost professionalism the complexities of a £ 1.5 billion programme to upgrade the Midland Main between London and Sheffield with scope encompassing some 164km of new electrification, power supply upgrade, Telecomms and SCADA immunization. This required liaison and interface management with Network Rail and their wider supply chain for disciplines including Track Remodelling, Route clearance, Line speed enhancement & Signalling Upgrades.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Fin and the rest of the Axial team for any multi-disciplined Rail Project and would not hesitate to use them again
Axial Projects are a highly skilled and dedicated team who have enhanced the Planning and Programming discipline on the North West Electrification Programme, bringing in new ideas and raising the bar and this has helped the Project's own planners to develop and improve.
The service provided is second to none and has been highly praised by our
customer Network Rail.
‘The bid leadership support that we received from Axial Projects, who supported us to deliver and win a complex track programme bid for TfL, was first class. We will definitely be using their services again and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the industry.’
