HS2 High Speed Rail

HS2 High Speed Rail Bridge Replacement

“HS2 will release the capacity that is essential to deliver the major regional transport plans for the Midlands and the North. HS2 will free up space for around 150 extra freight trains per day, enough to transport over 2.5m more lorries' worth of cargo on our railways each year. Capacity, not speed, is the key to why HS2 is essential for our infrastructure and future growth of the UK economy.”
Richard Toy, CEO
RSS Infrastructure is working with Skanska who have been appointed to deliver the Infrastructure Projects Central Framework for Network Rail; this includes the demolition and replacement of the SAS13 Bridge on the Stechford to Aston (SAS) rail line. The new bridge will be a 92m single spanning structure, providing a more significant footprint and increasing the clearance.

RSS Infrastructure are helping to create an infrastructure fit for future generations which links HS2, mainline stations, transport interchanges and Birmingham Airport.

Working with Skanska, RSSI are supplying experienced labour as well as specific services such as Vegetation Management, Site Preparation and Clearance and Possession Management which are vital for the successful demolition and replacement of the SAS13 Bridge on the Stechford to Aston (SAS) rail line.

HS2 will provide 345 miles of new, high-speed track and will carry more than 300,000 passengers a day when fully operational. When combined with the West Midlands Metro extensions, the region’s public transport will link Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Dudley, Brierley Hill, Digbeth, North Solihull, Birmingham Airport, the NEC and HS2. This integrated network will connect more people with work, leisure and education opportunities.

Auctus Management Group is proud to be part of a team delivering a transport infrastructure that will bring further opportunities to the people and attract additional investment to the West Midlands region.

“Before COVID-19, research from the Government and Network Rail demonstrated continuous growth in rail travel in Great Britain driven by population increases, economic development and public policy to use more sustainable transport modes. Long-distance lines are facing a capacity crunch in the coming years, which is why the government gave the go-ahead for HS2.”
