Runners up at the Rail Frieght Group Awards

A joint award submission from ABP Southampton and Solent Stevedores was awarded Runner Up at the Rail Freight Group 2019 Awards.

The Solent Rail Terminal extension project was in the running for the Rail Freight Project of the Year award following the £1million infrastructure update that has recently doubled the terminal's capacity to meet significant market demand.

The project lost out to a multi-million pound infrastructure upgrade by National Rail.

Despite missing out on the award on the evening, the project has been a real success for air quality in the city as the upgrades mean that a potential of up to 180,000 lorry movements could be removed from the highway network each year.
