Van Elle delivers the final piece of the jigsaw...

August 2017

In preparing for the imminent launch of the infamous HS2 project, significant investment has been made in the construction of 2 specialist 'National Colleges for High Speed Rail'; one in Doncaster and the other in Birmingham.

Van Elle were recently approached by the High Speed Rail team to assist them in preparing the college for its official launch, namely, lifting their rail bogey onto a section of slab track and pushing their new high speed train into its final resting place. To undertake this complex procedure, we utilised one of our unique Colmar T10,000FSCG rail cranes which could operate within the building without outriggers. We dropped the tracks onto special plates to protect the new highly polished flooring and proceeded to lift the bogey onto the next track. Please see the below video for a snapshot of the work that was undertaken in this bespoke environment.
