Colas Rail extends Rugby depot

Freight company Colas Rail has extended its depot in Rugby to accommodate a new rail grinder.

The machine has been made by track machinery manufacturer LORAM and will be owned by Network Rail. It is expected to operate in the UK for the next 25-30 years.

Stacie Mastrodomenico is Colas Rail’s head of business optimisation and innovation for urban services.

She said: “We are proud to be investing in our people and the local area with our modern depot extension at Rugby. It’s been a great learning experience leading such a challenging project, built with so many logistical considerations.

“I’m very proud of the results, which couldn’t have been achieved without the great team I had working with me to deliver this project.”

The extension of the Rugby depot has seen it double in size.
