All the agreements are zero-sum with a workbank of £300m over the course of the next funding period - Control Period 5.
Amey has secured a second consecutive term as Network Rail’s sole supplier of civil examinations, and retained a major footprint in rail structures assessments. Its new contracts are worth more than £40m a year.
The Civil Examination Framework Agreements (CEFA) for Control Period 5 (CP5) will be delivered by Amey across the UK, with the exception of the London North Western Route, which Network Rail plan to operate in-house.
Amey will also deliver the Civil Assessments Framework Agreements (CAFA CP5) for London North Eastern / East Midlands, Anglia, and Kent routes. In addition the company has a place on a national strategic delivery panel for assessments through which it will respond in other routes.
Netwrok Rail has also agreed five zero-value civil assessments frameworks to cover each of its routes.
- Anglia: Aecom and Amey
- Kent: Amey
- London North Eastern and East Midlands: Aecom and Amey
- LNW: Aecom, SKM and Opus
- Scotland: Aecom
- Sussex, Wales, Wessex and Western: WSP.
Amey chief executive Mel Ewell said: “Continuing our successful examinations and assessments relationship with Network Rail is great news for our business. The scope of the new contracts spanning the next five years builds on Amey’s and Network Rail’s track record of strong performance by making better use of technology and introducing more efficient ways of working. Through even greater collaboration we will and create an even safer and more reliable civils infrastructure."
Network Rail’s director of contracts and procurement, Ian Sexton, said: “Monitoring the condition of our infrastructure - including bridges, tunnels, embankments and culverts – is a vital part of keeping Britain’s railways safe.
“By working with these trusted suppliers over the next five years we can continue to improve and build on the knowledge we have of our network.”
