Bam awarded Belgian rail contracts

Belgian rail infrastructure manager Infrabel has awarded contractor Bam Nuttall two contracts worth €85M (£73.6M).

Both contracts are part of the construction of a new rail bypass to improve the accessibility of Mechelen, 30km north of Brussels.

The contracts were awarded to Bam’s Belgian operating company CEI-De Meyer in a joint venture with contractor Jan de Nul.

The firms will construct a tunnel under the Leuven-Diile Canal, a bridge over it and a rail bridge over the river Diile with adjustments to tracks and overhead lines.

Construction will begin in summer 2013 and is expected to last three years.
