Network Rail has awarded 20 framework agreements worth £1.6Bn covering an extensive programme of enhancements and renewals on its London North Western and East Midlands routes.

 

Nine successful contractors will deliver railway engineering, civil engineering, buildings, structures, earthworks, property and electrification and plant services for the rail operator over the next five years, part of a £38Bn investment programme to be delivered by 2019.

 

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,” he added.

 

The largest individual framework awarded has a lot value of £348M and went to Carillion Construction for railway engineering services in the East Midlands region.

 

J. Murphy & Sons secured five framework places, for structures, earthworks and property works in London North West. The contractor will also provide civil engineering services in the East Midlands as part of a joint framework with Amalgamated Construction (Amco) worth £246M.

 

VolkerRail, Amco and Story Contracting all secured three framework agreements while Miller Construction and Buckingham Group Contracting won two each. Skanska Construction and Amey were given one framework each.

 

This follows Network Rail’s announcement last week that it had awarded framework contracts worth a combined £250M for the delivery of building and civils work on the Scotland and London North Eastern routes. Amco, Taziker Industrial, Construction Marine, Miller Construction, Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering, QTS Group and Story Contracting all received three year framework agreements.
