The Result

A satisfied client and another quality project completed. This enormous project is a prime example of A&B Rail Services expertise, capabilities, and commitment to Doing It Right. There were a number of challenges that came up during the project that A&B Rail Services was able to overcome. Some of these challenges included work to be completed amongst multiple trades simultaneously; track time was at a premium, and there were frequent project design changes. As the safety of our team, our client, and the public, as well as meeting the requirements of our customers have always been A&B Rail Services’ number one priority, procedures and systems were put in place to ensure all goals and safety standards were met. For the travelling public, the successful completion of this project increased public safety with the segregation of road vehicle traffic from train traffic. For A&B Rail Services, it means another satisfied customer in our 50-year journey to become Canada’s largest, most experienced, and most sought-after rail services company.
