Cardiff turns it on......

Posted by on 14 June 2017 | Comments

We were exceptionally proud to support the delivery of the UEFA Champions League Final 2017 in Cardiff after a successful tender process. Graham Arnott took a dedicated  team into the match day, having all completed a Banksman course, with the responsibility of directing and parking 200 VIP and Sponsor coaches and ensuring all their guests had a great experience on arrival and departure. A long and challenging day, but great feedback from our client and a rewarding day for all Real Madrid fans as well ! Even the MD got in on the act for once.

Investors In People continues......

Posted by on 16 May 2017 | Comments

We are very pleased to announce that following an extensive assessment involving a permanent staff online survey, individual staff and management interviews and observations in the workplace by the assessor, CSP has retained our Investors in People accreditation. This is now the 6th generation of the accreditation and is reliant on constant improvement  through which we have looked at ourselves very closely and identified where further improvements can be made. The highest scores we received were recognition and connection to our Values: Caring, Safe and Professional, and how they adapted to each individual and role within our organisation. This was extremely pleasing given that we have gone through a number of restructures over the last 12 months during which these were introduced. We are also developing an action plan on staff recognition which is an area for improvement, so in addition to our Golden Ticket Scheme and Employee of the Year Awards, we are seeking to acknowledge more staff through our Facebook social media site (

New CSP Induction Launched

Posted by on 3 May 2017 | Comments

Recognising the wide geographical spread of our workforce and the difficulty in efficiently tying in  induction sessions, coupled with travelling time and busy work schedules, we have been working to produce an on-line induction programme to CSP that all staff can access and complete remotely whether on PC or smart phone. The on-line induction is now being rolled out to all our existing workforce and new starters, with effect from 8th May, will not be able to access shifts until they have completed the induction. We will also be updating the induction each year and all staff will be required to retake and pass prior to the start of each year.

We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Perry Price as Head of Operations.

Highbury and Islington Major Bridge Replacement

Posted by on 19 April 2017 | Comments

A £25m project to rebuild Highbury Corner Bridge is underway. The bridge carries more than 25,000 vehicles a day over the railway lines by Highbury and Islington station. The project, for Transport for London is part of TfL’s plan to improve London's roads and public spaces. The Highbury Corner Bridge was built around 1850 and sits under the Highbury & Islington station building and forecourt. Due to its condition, the bridge cannot be repaired and needs to be completely replaced. The first phase involves the reconstruction of the bridge beneath the station forecourt . CSP were nominated as the pedestrian management contractor to support the rebuild and take great pride in the work being carried out to help minimise disruption and maintain a safe environment on the roads for both commuters and workers. This has been led by Ben Burrows with support from the wider team due to the daily shift work and is a testament to working together as a team to deliver a caring, safe and professional operation.
