Swedish contract for Yorkshire manufacturer

Rosehill Rail in Sowerby Bridge has won a contract to supply the Swedish transport administration, Trafikverket.

Through its partner Lesanco, the West Yorkshire company will supply anti-trespass panels to Trafikverket for use across Sweden.

The panels will be installed on level crossings and platform ends and with high levels of unauthorised track access.

Working in collaboration with Network Rail, Rosehill Rail developed its rubber anti-trespass panels more than 15 years ago as a replacement to traditional timber-slatted cattle grids.

Andrew Knight, export manager at Rosehill Rail, said: "This deal is great news for both Rosehill Rail and Lesanco, whose teams have worked tirelessly over the last three years to bring it to fruition.

"On-track or off-track, Rosehill Rail's Anti-Trespass Panels are a proven physical and visual deterrent to trespassers attempting to access tracks or other prohibited areas.

"They are simple and quick to install, and can be easily removed and replaced during maintenance. They can also be used with existing crossing systems, and cut-to-fit around existing track infrastructure."
