Building a new 16-mile double track system, new stations, electrifying lines and extending platforms at existing stations, the Highland Enhancement Programme (HEP) improves capacity and connectivity between the major cities of Aberdeen and Inverness.
Engaged by BAM Nuttall and working in collaboration with several other contractors including Siemens, Babcock Rail, Aecom and CH2M, Kelly Rail delivered HEP to support more services, improve journey times and create a more attractive public transport choice for all communities along the line.
As part of the early contractor engagement process, Kelly Rail met with Network Rail, Scot Rail, BAM Nuttall and the maintainer ADT regularly to clarify the scope and identify potential risks in advance of the work starting on site. This proved extremely beneficial as all risks were discussed and solutions put in place in advance of the site works, mitigating any disruption.
