Network Rail to take on ETI staff

Key employees of Elec-Track Installations have been invited by Network Rail to join the infrastructure owner.

Around 50 employees of the Kent-based firm, which is in administration and has been bought by Morgan Est, are specialist supervisors for the installation of overhead electrical equipment for the railway.

The talks follow last week’s announcement by Network Rail that is was seeking to bring more specialist engineering resource in-house to boost its ability to carry out this specialist area of work rather than rely on agency personnel.

Peter Henderson, group infrastructure director at Network Rail, said: “We hope these key ETI employees will join our team and add another core competence to our engineering capacity. This follows a clear strategy to bolster – where necessary – our capability, such as the earlier bringing in-house of maintenance and signalling design.”
