Stafford Area Improvements Programme (SAIP)

Atkins Limited on behalf of the Staffordshire Alliance (Network Rail, VolkerRail, Laing O’Rourke and Atkins)


West Coast Mainline is of national significance, requiring upgrade through large scale engineering works. Environmental aspects were addressed by Atkins Limited and comprehensively considered the three pillars of sustainability – society, economy and the environment, with benefits in all three areas such as zero environmental incidents during construction and helping to deliver an immediate increase in passenger and freight capacity.

Atkins demonstrated innovation and high professional standards providing environmental excellence to help meet challenging project objectives while still maintaining a live and critical piece of infrastructure. This approach resulted in successful delivery and an approach now used on other rail projects.
