Rail Projects of Note

Below is a small selection of projects of which we have been a part.


The Crossrail project has been setup to take forward both the east-west Crossrail route and also the associated development of the Hackney-South West scheme. This will be a £16 billion scheme, which will be the largest civil engineering project since the Channel Tunnel and will provide a new route to the heart of the capital. Once the project is complete, it will allow 24 trains per hour straight into the centre of London from the east and west, improving rail links to the West End, the City and Docklands. This is currently one of the highest profile UK Rail jobs.


The UK’s first high-speed rail link, linking central London to Paris. Talascend supplied half of Rail Link Engineering’s contract workers, 1000 people over 8 years, making a significant contribution to the project’s ongoing success and upcoming delivery. UK Rail jobs are a primary focus for our teams.

Dulles Metro

At an estimated $1.8bn, the Dulles Metrorail project is making a major investment in the Northern Virginian transportation infrastructure. This project, scheduled through 2015, will span over 23.1 miles and will serve the congested Tyson’s corner, Reston and Dulles Airport areas.
