The Island Line Upgrade, Isle of Wight

Client: OSL Global

Case Study- the Isle of Wight railway line

The Island Line and its associated infrastructure, on the Isle of Wight, in the UK, have been upgraded to offer a more frequent service and introduce more trains. The rail line runs between Ryde Pier Head and Shanklin, passing through Smallbrook Junction, Brading, Sandown, and Lake stations.

The upgraded project involved the launch of a refurbished fleet of Class 484 trains and improvements to rail infrastructure, including creating level access from the train to the station platform.

During a 20-week blockade on the Island Line, MacRail provided site access controllers, induction management and control reporting, welfare, and temporary checks.

All the workers were recruited from the Isle of Wight, which helped our client OSL Global with win the CEEQUAL award for Sustainability*

*CEEQUAL is the international evidence-based sustainability assessment, rating and awards scheme for civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping and works in public spaces.
