Ordsall Chord contracts signed

Ordsall Chord Manchester Network Rail

Network Rail has signed contracts with the construction firms that will help deliver the long-awaited Ordsall Chord project in Manchester.

The body formed an official delivery partnership with Amey, Skanska, Bam Nuttall and Siemens for the scheme to link the city’s Victoria, Piccadilly and Oxford Road stations.

The move comes after the Court of Appeal dismissed a legal challenge to the process by which permission was granted for the Ordsall Chord.

New Civil Engineer reported back in 2013 that a Skanska/Bam Nuttall joint venture was in line to deliver the project.

Network Rail alliance manager Mike Heywood said: “Within this alliance of organisations, we have a wide range of skills and experience to make this vital new stretch of railway a reality and deliver the service all rail passengers deserve.”
