Working in partnership with Transport for London we have been consistently providing TFL with maintenance services on their trams for several years and are proud to be providing this service. With further works being planned our strong relationship with the client maintains Orion Rail’s primary focus.
After the recommendation of the Sandilands Enquiry, there were requirements for additional renewals of the existing trams. One being, the renewal of, the emergency lighting. After the bid process, the works were awarded to Orion Rail. The scope of works included the design, manufacturing and installation of the lighting boxes.
The extensive project management works required, through communicating extensively with designers and manufacturers Orion were able to provide 3D sketches and designs to suit the install into the existing trams. Once procures the install into the 14 Bombardier trams began completing two installs a tram a week. Then, accelerating the program to four installs per week. The works required reactive project management so to meant the sensitive deadlines, achieved through strong supplier relationships and client communication.
