The M O’Brien group has had a large amount of involvement on the London Luton Airport DART project, located very close the groups headquarters in St Albans. The £225m Luton DART (Direct Air-Rail Transit) will speed travellers from Luton Airport Parkway station to the terminal of London Luton Airport in well under four minutes. The project will provide a step-change in how passengers get to and from the airport, and is being funded and delivered by Luton Council’s airport company, London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL).
The project has overcome a large number of technical challenges and impressed engineers across Europe with its innovative solutions to deliver the works. Throughout the job we have provided the project with the following services;
Earthworks excavation and fill operations.
Demolition of structures and Asbestos removal
Plant hire, operated and self drive
Supply of sand and aggregates.
Providing our client with a one stop shop for all of the above services has helped streamline the delivery of this technical project. Over the course of the excavation we used many specialist items of plant including our telescopic clamshell excavators, reinforced tunnelling spec excavators, 22 meter long reach excavators and a range of GPS equipment.
