Seven picked for £250M Network Rail renewals contracts

Network Rail has awarded framework contracts worth a combined £250M for building and civils work on the Scotland and London North Eastern routes.

Seven contractors will deliver more than 1,000 maintenance, renewals and enhancements projects, including earthworks, bridges, tunnels, footbridges and station buildings, in Network Rail’s control period 5 (2014-19).

The successful contractors are:

London North Eastern & East Midlands route (total value approximately £150M):

  • Structures – Amalgamated Construction
  • Viaducts – Taziker Industrial
  • Bridge reconstruction – Amalgamated Construction
  • Structure repairs – Amalgamated Construction
  • Station footbridges – Construction Marine
  • Earthworks – Construction Marine
  • Station buildings – Miller Construction
  • Major structures – Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering

Scotland route (total value approximately £100M):

  • Structures – Amalgamated Construction
  • Structures repairs – Taziker Industrial
  • Geotechnical (earthworks) – QTS Group
  • Buildings – Story Contracting

The frameworks, which will run for an initial three years, aim to deliver improvements in safety, cost, quality and productivity through collaborative working.

If suppliers can demonstrate that work has been delivered safely and successfully within budget, the contracts can each be extended by another two years plus one further year.

Rob McIntosh, regional director of infrastructure projects, Network Rail, said: “These new frameworks represent a significant commitment by suppliers, allowing us to work closely with them so that work can be carried out more quickly and efficiently.

“Network Rail is continuing to drive down the costs of Britain’s railway and is committed to meeting tough efficiency targets. Our work with these suppliers will ensure that improvement work is delivered safely and efficiently, ultimately delivering a bigger, better and better value railway.”
