Van Elle seals piling deal on Transpennine Route Upgrade

TRU is a multi-billion-pound investment programme that will deliver reliability, capacity and journey time improvements between Manchester and York via Huddersfield and Leeds.

The West of Leeds Alliance (TRU West) is responsible for the transformation of the railway between Manchester and Leeds and is being delivered by an alliance of Network Rail, Arup, Amey OWR, BAM and Siemens. 

TRU West will undertake the electrification and re-signalling of the 42 miles of railway connecting Manchester and Leeds via Huddersfield, and will be working on over a dozen stations along the route.

Mark Cutler, Chief Executive of Van Elle said: “The TRU West upgrade represents a complex array of projects that suit our breadth of expertise in the rail sector.

“We will be working in a collaborative environment which allows us to provide early engineering advice and cost effective solutions for this transformative infrastructure programme.”
