Balfour Beatty has won a £50M reactive building and civils contract from Network Rail.
The five-year contract is worth up to £50M and will require the contractor to carry out short notice rail infrastructure repairs and projects along the Great Western route from London to Penzance.
The contract has been awarded through the “route building and civils frameworks”.
Balfour Beatty managing director for rail and utilities Mark Bullock said: “This contract award is testament to the strength of Balfour Beatty’s relationship with Network Rail and our ability to deliver at short notice a range of reactive work from track through to buildings and general infrastructure repair.
“I am pleased that Balfour Beatty has been entrusted to ensure the safe and efficient operation of one of the most important parts of the UK rail network.”
Last month Network Rail also awarded Balfour Beatty a seven-year contract, to supply, operate and maintain a fleet of 13 track maintenance vehicles, known as on track machines or tampers. The contract, worth in excess of £115M, will be rolled out across Anglia and South East routes.
