Global Rail Services Wins Irish Rail Coastal Defense Contract

Global Rail Services has secured a contract for the Iarnród Éireann (Irish Rail) coastal defense works.

The overall objective of the project is to reinstate coastal protection elements adjacent to the Dublin ‐ Rosslare Railway Line by February 2018.

This involves removing and replacing the rock armor and reinstating/replacing the geotextile underlay along with any granular sub-layers.

Managing Director, Ivan Holloway, commented upon this latest Irish success, by saying: “This is testimony to the Irish team for their continued hard work, skill and endeavor. This is the fourth contract success in a matter of weeks. Not only are we winning work at a rate of knots, we are also competently delivering them.

“This award is a result of our clear appreciation of working on both railway and environmentally-sensitive sites, where access is restricted, time is limited and where tidal operations are required.

The total construction period will be approximately 16 weeks for these works.
