08 Feb Loading Tilting Trailers with Track Panels for Network Rail
We regularly perform train track panel lifts and work very closely with Network Rail, as the Railway industry is one of our primary market sectors. Here in the photo we are loading x8 panels onto different Lawsons Haulage trailers.
One of the Lawsons trailers we are loading however is rather special. It is their brand new revolutionary ‘Tilting Trailer‘ that is changing the way wide train track panels are transported as typically they would take up 2 lanes of UK roads, but when tilted the width is massively reduced and as a result not needing a long drawn out VR1 movement order and Police escorts before being able to be delivered. This then cuts down on delivery time and in turn speeds up Network Rail’s scheduled maintenance work, consequently bringing down the number of delayed trains Nationwide.
