Heath Lambert appointed to Scottish railway Project

Heath Lambert has been appointed as the insurance advisor for Transport Scotland’s borders railway project.

The £235 million to £295 million scheme will provide a link between Newcraighall station in Edinburgh and Tweedbank, which lies 49 km away in the Scottish borders.

It will re-establish passenger railway services for the first time since 1969 and seven new stations will be built along the route.

Ancillary work will start this year, with main construction work taking place in 2011 and completion scheduled for 2014.

Heath Lambert will be responsible for advising on insurance matters including the development of the insurance strategy for the construction and operation of the scheme.

The broker’s project team leader, Mark Bourke, says: “Our team has mobilised immediately and are working closely with Transport Scotland and our co-advisors … we look forward to forming new relationships and developing our reputation as a team player and valued advisor.”

In January, Heath Lambert was appointed insurance advisor for the Forth Replacement Crossing, which involves a 2.7km cable-stayed bridge over the Firth of Forth, together with approach roads.
