LH GROUP has set up a road-rail division, which will supply guidance systems to convert road vehicles for rail use, and lease vehicles to engineering contractors. LH Access Technology will benefit from engineering designs purchased from the now-defunct Two Way Technology, from which LH has also recruited a number of senior staff.
An initial order has been placed for four Mercedes-Benz Unimog U400 vehicles. These will be fitted with low-weight powered access platforms to a design originally developed by TWT. A test track is being established at Burton on Trent.
