Lowery Ltd have undertaken multiple Short Circuit Testing (SCT) on the Track Feeder Switch (TFS) Project sites over a number of weekend possessions. This has been undertaken in line with the company COVID-19 requirements/process with the team. Given the main lines on which the testing was applicable the potential impact on the operational railway was a high risk factor successfully managed and mitigated by the Lowery Project Team. It goes without saying that Network Rail Route, needed to ensure service was maintained for the essential working requirements.
Lowery Ltd are proud to be a part of this project. Continuing to assist Costain to achieve the project milestones safely whilst working under the new COVID-19 restrictions.

Lowery will (where possible to conduct the works safely) continue to carry out the works that our existing and new clients require to enable the railway to operate and provide a transport and freight service to their customers.
