Amey tipped to win rail mega-contracts

Amey is this week expected to be named as the sole winner of five major Network Rail bridge inspection framework contracts.

According to sources close to the deal, the contracts will see it take responsibility for all structural assessments across five regions after Network Rail opted to merge 21 existing contracts into five mega-frameworks.

Network Rail made the surprise move to rationalise the contracts last October when it cancelled the existing deals, some of which had five years to run, and invited incumbents to re-bid for work (NCE 16 October 2008).

Before, work was split geographically and by discipline. Each framework is over five years with an option to extend for a further two.

Those losing out include: Mouchel, Atkins, WSP, Pell Frischmann, Jacobs, Mott MacDonald, First, Faber Maunsell and Opus.
