Anderson to head new Balfour Beatty Rail division

Balfour Beatty has named Peter Anderson as managing director of its new rail division. He took up his new role last week.

Anderson joined Balfour Beatty Rail in February 2007 after working in the contractor’s civil engineering division.

He will lead the company’s Track Renewals business through Network Rail’s “6 to 4” supplier rationalisation programme.The programme was established to stimulate improved performance and increase competition between main contractors.

Balfour Beatty announced that it was creating a £500M turnover rail division in June. It will incorporate three existing rail businesses: Balfour Beatty Rail Projects, Balfour Beatty Rail Services and Balfour Beatty Rail Systems & Solutions.

Enhancing company position

Balfour Beatty Rail UK has been created following a detailed review of the existing rail operating companies. Its establishment is intended to enhance its position as the leading UK multidisciplinary rail manufacturing, construction, installation, testing and commissioning business.

A Balfour Beatty spokesman said: “The new division for which Peter is responsible for will serve the UK and selected overseas markets which currently include Australia, Singapore and South America.”
