Tube work worth £110m for Balfour Beatty

10 Dec 10 Balfour Beatty Rail has won a five-year contract to carry out track renewal work on the London Underground network.

The contractor will be working in partnership with London Underground itself. Total value of the work to be delivered by the partnership is £220m, of which around half will be Balfour Beatty's share.

Works include the replacement of ballasted track, points and crossings, including all ancillary signalling and drainage works on the Tube network. A start is expected in spring 2011. There is an option to extend the contract for a further two years after the initial five-year period.

Balfour Beatty chief executive Ian Tyler said: "We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with London Underground.  We are very pleased to be part of such a crucial project, working in partnership with London Underground to deliver a world-class transport system for London."
