EGIP

EGIP

The Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP) is a comprehensive package of improvements to Scotland's railway infrastructure. A Scottish Government priority, the EGIP is being delivered by Network Rail and includes modernisation and upgrades to key junctions and infrastructure as well as electrification of the Scottish rail network, including the main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow and to Stirling and Dunblane. We were responsible for the supply of blue and white-collar Civils, Construction and Rail labour to Morgan Sindall, for the rail infrastructure upgrades throughout the Route. Projects included:

  • Station refurbishment and redevelopments

  • Bridges & Structures replacement

  • Depot refurbishments

  • Platform and throat works at Queen Street Station

  • Track slab installation

  • Boundary works

Roles included, but are not limited to:

Civils trades

  • Concrete workers

  • Groundworkers

  • Plant operators

  • Civils Gangers

  • Civils workers

  • Form workers

  • Joiners

  • Brick layers

  • Supervisory and rail

  • Supervisory staff (Civils)

  • Signalling and telecommunications

  • Overhead line (OHL)

  • Protection and welding operatives

  • Engineering Supervisors

  • Track staff

  • Safety critical

  • Crane and Machine Controllers

  • De-vegetation teams

  • Fencing teams

Morgan Sindall required a wide range of an operatives’ experience, competence, attitude as well as capability is considered for every shift that is filled. We have continued to outperform the key performance indicators (KPIs) that have been put in place to measure our safety performance. Encouraging the reporting of close calls, conducting safety tours, safety briefings and ensuring PPE compliance has all contributed towards firmly embedding safety behaviours within our operatives. Our mobile safety unit which has been shortlisted for a workforce safety award played a key role in making sure that our operatives are regularly briefed face-to-face. To progress our key ambition of providing long-standing career opportunities for local workers, considerable partnerships were developed with the local colleges to the project’s footprint, such as Edinburgh College, to provide a pathway into Civil and Rail Engineering. Students were placed on an NVQ Level 2 training course which paired extensive theory-based learning with practical learning on a newly refurbished College training facility we maintained on their behalf. Over the course of the project, over 100 college students were engaged for work, with many still forming part of our workforce today.
