  • Client Feedback

    The project received exceptional feedback from Network Rail, with MML3 Programme Head of Rail Systems Dean Frazer commenting: “On the back of this I would just like to extend my thanks to you and the team for getting this job done in good time for us. It’s been well received and noted by the Route Directors. Especially the way the team engaged with Network Rail in terms of keeping the disturbance down to a minimum given the sensitivity working around the signallers in the operations room.”
