Developments in heavy rail continue to set the bar for faster speeds, greater capacity, and lower environmental impact.
Rail now connects us like us never before, opening new doors to economic growth, and offering a greener, safer, and more sustainable alternative to car transport. From cities to countryside, Ardent is proud to support our rail networks’ ongoing vision to shape our landscape, bringing our communities and economy closer together through climate-smart and efficient developments.
Home to one of the busiest rail networks in Europe, Ardent has significant experience supporting heavy rail projects throughout the UK. We’re proud to have supported more Transport and Works Act Orders (TWAO’s) and DCO’s than any other firm in the UK, leveraging our combined experience to support and develop notable Heavy Rail projects, including HS2 and East West Rail.
We have designed a unique approach to project delivery by offering six integrated core services that help support your project through its entire life cycle, from conception to completion.
