  • To create a light rail transit extension of 1.4km in Birmingham City Centre
  • Zero weld rejection rate to date.

The project for Birmingham Metro was to create a light rail transit extension of 1.4km in the city centre for Train Operating Company, Centro. Following the tender process at the beginning of 2014, Haigh Rail was selected as the supplier of choice to deliver welding services on the line.

Whilst working under tight timescales and within very close proximity of the general public, we successfully welded the entire 1.4 kilometre extension in Birmingham city centre by means of a mixture of 55G2 groove rail embedded and 39E1/80A flat bottom rail profiles. During a 12-month period we performed 407 individual welds, with a zero rejection rate.
