E-Rail wins Scottish Prestige Award for ‘Transport Funding Company of the Year

E-Rail has been crowned ‘Transport Funding Company of the Year’ after being recognised by Corporate LiveWire’s 2020/2021 Scottish Prestige Awards.

The awards recognise small and medium-sized businesses that have proven to be the best in their market over the past 12 months.

The judging criteria covered areas such as service excellence, quality of the product/ service provided, innovative practices, value, ethical and sustainable methods of working, as well as consistency in performance.

Dr George Hazel, Director of E-Rail said: “We work hard to improve people’s lives by improving connectivity.

“We’re proud to receive this award, which recognises over a decade’s hard work in this pioneering area, that involves using land value capture to fund infrastructure projects.”

E-Rail – working with Northumberland County Council – has recently secured the first true land value capture in the UK, generating up to 30% of the cost of reopening the Northumberland Line
