Rail Contractor Briefing for Reptiles


During routine inspections of cables lying within concrete troughing to the side of a section of active railway track in Bognor small numbers of Slow Worms were discovered.

Consequently, we produced a method statement for the intended works and subsequently presented this to VolkerRail contractors at a site briefing.
