Nine named for £1.6bn rail frameworks

5 Sep 14 Nine contractors are set to share in £1.6bn of railway work after winning places on a series of 20 framework agreements with Network Rail.

The frameworks cover enhancements and renewals to the London North Western and East Midlands routes over the next five years.

The work delivered under the frameworks represents a significant portion of the £38bn Network Rail will invest over the next five years on running, maintaining and improving Britain’s railway, which currently sees four million passenger journeys and thousands of tonnes of freight transported every single day.

The selected suppliers are: Amalgamated Construction, Amey, Buckingham Group Contracting, Carillion Construction, J Murphy & Sons, Miller Construction (UK), Skanska Construction UK, Story Contracting and VolkerRail.

Network Rail infrastructure projects director Rob Offord said: “The awarding of these frameworks represents a significant milestone in the implementation of our new procurement and contracting strategy. This will bring improved safety, whole-life cost efficiency and delivery performance through collaborative relationships with a consolidated and strategically aligned supply chain.”

Amey chief executive Mel Ewell said: “Network Rail is a key client for Amey, and through this framework we are able to further support their aims to drive value and enhance collaboration across their supply chain. It provides an excellent vehicle for sharing of best practice to support improvements to Britain’s rail network.”
