Project Profile:

Multi-year track protection services contract (railway flagging) which enabled ongoing infrastructure work on the City of Edmonton’s Anthony Henday Drive ring road.


The Project

Track Protection / Flagging: A&B Rail Services was hired to provide railway flagging services to City of Edmonton contractors Flatiron, Dragdos, AECOM and Lafarge.
