Construction Services

GB Railfreight hauls raw materials and finished goods including gypsum, aggregates, limestone, iron ore, sleepers, ballast and rails, giving its customers an attractive and viable alternative in the construction materials' haulage market.


We can move materials into and away from locations all over country, using our range of box wagons, containers, tanks and hoppers. Currently, we work with Lafarge Tarmac, British Gypsum, Yeoman, Aggregate Industries, Network Rail and Transport for London.

Crossrail is a great example of the way our team tailored a freight transport service for the biggest construction project in Europe. The Crossrail tunneling contractor, BFK, awarded GBRf a major contract to move over one million tonnes of excavated material from a tunnel portal at Westbourne Park in west London to Northfleet in Kent. At the peak of tunnelling, up to five freight trains will operate per day, carrying a total of 7,000 tonnes of earth and – in conjunction with boat-based removals – removing at least 50,000 lorry journeys from central London. The first train was moved in May 2012.
