Works will involve supply of all safety critical staff including ES, Strapping and COSS duties, complete conductor rail renewal of all 6 lines and S&C with negative bonding, hook switches, side and facing entry ramps and welding completing the work scope.

Additions to our Fleet

Pod-Trak have recently begun upgrading some of our older fleet to bring them up to Crossrail and FORS Compliance, including high visibility chevron markings, reversing beacons, LED strobe lighting, reversing sensors and cyclist warning signage. We’ve also invested in a fleet of 7 brand new safe and fuel efficient Citroen Berlingo vans, taking 4 aging vans off the road. Furthermore we’ve added 2 brand new Ford Transit Mobile Welfare Vans to our portfolio to meet our growing customer demands; these welfare units are in use 7 days a week, 24hrs a day on several key projects in the Home Counties. To service the needs of our growing fleet we have two full time fitters employed in the company with reliable servicing partners A406 Autos taking care of regular service intervals. Our Plant and Equipment list is also expanding with the addition of 4 EVO RR14 RRV MEWPs with Neotec rail trailers, a CAT 312D 12 tonne excavator, several drum trailers, a Daewoo Forklift and a JCB 533-105 Telehandler.
