Thales-Balfour Beatty win £335M Danish rail signalling contract

Contractor Balfour Beatty and electronics firm Thales has today won a £335M contract by Danish railway operator Banedanmark to upgrade much of the country’s railway signalling system.

Balfour Beatty Rail and Thales will form an integrated team to deliver the project covering 60% of Denmark’s railway network.

Balfour Beatty’s part of the contract, worth £90M, will use its rail division to install signalling, back-up by programme management services from Parsons Brinckerhoff.

The contract’s follows a European Union rail directive requiring operators to upgrade train protection systems.
