Delivery of programme-critical consents for £2bn+ East Coast Main Line Railway Upgrade

About This Project

Included within the consents remit were all environmental, consultation, Town planning and TWA matters.

SGAL Ltd. was contracted by Fluor to help set up the programme management team and then to deliver all the consents necessary to implement the Network Rail East Coast Main Line upgrade, valued in excess of £2bn.

We held single-point project management responsibility for obtaining time-critical planning consents, land acquisition, environmental management and consultation targets required for the development of the upgrade programme.

Other successes included maintaining a low profile for the upgrade when faced with a politically-sensitive early purchase policy of local housing adjacent to the project, procuring and retaining specialist legal and environmental resources and ensuring that each project’s consents were properly accounted for in the overall design and implementation strategies.
