Metrail Construction Ltd is a leading infrastructure repair and maintenance business operating across the UK.

The company is focused on the repair and maintenance of structures on Britain's road and rail networks, specifically bridge deck concrete repairs, bridge deck waterproofing and the installation and replacement of bridge deck joints in line with CD357 and CD358 design manuals.

The business was established in 2007 and has grown substantially under the leadership of Managing Director, Martyn Sherwood, who has over 20 years of experience in the sector.

The company, which has its head office in Hailsham near Eastbourne and with regional offices in Yorkshire and Scotland, is a GCP's waterproofing and expansion joint products. GCP provide technical back-up and support when needed. Metrail are also a member of the Bridge Joint Association.

As a specialist contractor, customers rely heavily on the Metrail capability to deliver work on time and on a budget so that the overall contract programme is maintained. Having a core team of experienced personnel on site and in the office is a key driver for success. Training & Skills accreditation play an important role in the business to ensure safe working practices and quality workmanship. Martyn Sherwood is personally committed to ensuring the highest standards of Health & Safety.

Highways England is a key client for Metrail with its specialist services delivered through some of the UK's leading Tier 1 contractors and joint ventures such as Balfour Beatty, Costain, FM Conway, Kier and AOne+.

Metrail has become the specialist contractor of choice for working on high profile structures such as Putney Bridge, Rochester Bridge and most recently London Bridge where Metrail has waterproofed over 10,000sq. meters of bridge deck and associated concrete repairs during the summer of 2020.

Metrail carried out a significant proportion of the waterproofing on both the new Queensferry Bridge over the Firth of Forth in Scotland and also on the new Mersey Gateway bridge near Liverpool.

During the summer of 2019 Metrail undertook concrete repairs, waterproofing and joint replacement on the refurbishment of Tinsley Viaduct on the M1 near Sheffield.
