East Midlands Gateway on BBC One East Midlands Today

02 Oct 2017, Posted by Heidi Salmons in Project Updates

East Midlands Gateway featured on BBC One East Midlands Today with a live report from the site talking about the scale and economic importance of the three-year project to create a Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI) at the heart of the United Kingdom’s transport network.

Winvic have been contracted by Roxhill Developments and SEGRO Plc to build a highways infrastructure and undertake extensive earthworks in the fulfilment of Contracts One and Two for the rail freight terminal and distribution park adjacent to East Midlands Airport.

Innovative engineering solutions, and an increasing use of digital systems, have been crucial in overcoming the project’s complex challenges, while the involvement of many interfaces have made our collaborative approach an essential commodity.

The first two Contracts provide the basis from which further stages of the scheme will establish an SRFI by 2019, one linking road and rail networks, providing one of the country’s largest logistics centres, and improving the highways in the area.

As Principal Contractor for the initial phases of this Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP), we have demonstrated our capacity to deliver Civils/Infrastructure on this scale, which is of huge importance to the country’s economic growth.
