Just a quick email to thank you and your team for the excellent work you have delivered on our site over the past 24 hrs. It is a pleasure to work with a contractor that is so responsive and well aligned with the needs of our business.
Please pass on my thanks to your workers who have toiled yesterday and in the rain today to ensure the No 4 traverser crossing point, the Crossrail Cabins rail crossing point and the K Shop rail flange clearance work are all being completed as promised. All achieved despite the very short notice of the requirements and other demands. Vic Hammond, Bombardier Transportation UK Ltd
