Network Rail names seven contractors for £250m framework

29 Aug 14 Seven contractors have been picked by Network Rail for building and civils framework contracts worth a combined £250m.

The contracts cover projects on the Scotland and London North Eastern routes and involve more than 1,000 maintenance, renewals and enhancements projects for earthworks, bridges, tunnels, footbridges and station buildings. The money is being spent as part of Network Rail’s £38bn investment programme covering the period from 2014 to 19.

The frameworks will run for an initial three years; 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: “As the number of passengers and companies that rely on Britain’s railway continues to rise, it’s vital that all parts of our infrastructure are fit for purpose.
