TTE were involved with this project from the early grip stages and help build the program ready for delivery.
TTE staff built up and installed all of the Wolber Depot points along with installing Indusi magnets, Signals, REED track circuits as well as extensive works in Wallsend Relay room.
This project was very challenging with regards to timescales but all TTE staff pulled together and showed the spirit that has helped shape our company.
Our MD Callum Finlayson went to site on the final weekend and reported back the following –
‘All staff were in great spirits and have shown great commitment and attitude towards the project. In what has been a very difficult period with Covid-19 I could not be more proud of how our staff have represented the company. We look forward to working alongside Fenix on future projects and building on our working relationship’. Callum Finlayson, Managing Director
