Are there parts of your job you find challenging?
Yes, challenging I mean, every day there are always some challenges. It is such a big project, there are so many people involved and I guess the other side of that is that there is a lot of people to keep happy and to make sure everyone is working and doing what they should be doing, staff can be challenging too because you cannot please everybody, so you must then prioritise.
Especially now with the compound, we have a big responsibility with Health and Safety to make sure it is working safely, if an incident happens or something happens on site then that is our priority.
How do you find working with supply chains?
It is interesting because each contractor has their own package of work that they carry out for the project. Some contractors are specialised in civil works such as Alun Griffiths and ground works are Balfour on the track and doing stuff on the railways. It is all interesting, as I have gone out on a visitors permit, which is where you get your oranges on.
