Over the last 5 years, Coombes has made significant efforts to be a caring neighbour and improve social performance in our representation with Network Rail, from the planning stage to delivery.
On contract award we firstly assess each site of work, environmental makeup, surrounding neighbourhood/s and general community composition. We carefully evaluate Network Rails remit before considering the practical methodology of workscope delivery in the safest manner (considering Varley Report and RSSB’s Rail Sustainable Development Principles).
This information is used in our assessment of the lineside neighbourhood and wider community to build up a plan of delivering the work in the quickest manner possible, with minimal impact. We endeavour that our interaction at each stage will have a positive effect to lineside neighbours, rather than a negative one by the following process:
Our fleet of RRV’s and Forestry Machinery are all purchased from new and run for a maximum of 5 years for greater efficiency, reliability and noise reduction
The following table shows a small sample of positive interaction with lineside neighbours:
We are committed to helping our clients operate responsibly and in line with all relevant legislation. We’re proud to offer a range of services that support environmental and ecological sustainability.
