In the early hours of a Thursday morning the CEMEX Team at Stourton Plant received their first ever Colas Rail train. This was carrying much needed 6mm High PSV stone from Gilfach Quarry (via Neath Abbey Railhead).
Nick Watson commented: “We have been trying hard to get this lane running and it will share services with material into Washwood Heath which is already booked for next week. This link provides a valuable and cost effective route to market for slow moving stock at Gilfach which is in high demand elsewhere in the UK, and allows us to minimise the road movements to these sites. We hope to fully establish these routes over the next few weeks with Colas Rail.
Thanks to Paul Carey for getting out of bed early on the Thursday to see the train in and offload the product. The Colas staff were professional and very customer focused which all bodes well for the future. This is a great way for us to be best for customers, shareholders and the community.”
