Whether working as a Tier one contractor for larger multidiscipline frameworks, as a partner in a joint venture or Alliance, or as a subcontractor to the wider rail sector, our teams of experts stand out from the crowd in everything we do by exceeding expectations.

Our business is split between two companies (VolkerRail Limited – also known as Major Projects - and VolkerRail Specialist Businesses Limited), who work independently, or collectively across all rail networks, including main line railways, branch lines, depots and underground and overground mass transit networks, including tramways and private industrial railways, delivery bespoke contracts to full major turnkey projects.

Our teams work independently, or collectively and specialise in:

  • Electrification and power – HV and LV
  • Piling and ground investigation
  • Rail operations
  • Signalling and operational telecoms
  • Fixed, ballasted and embedded track construction, renewals and maintenance
  • Track welding

These specialisms cover the full project lifecycle, from design through to fabrication, installation construction, testing and commissioning, with in-house design teams to undertake detailed design work for signalling and power related railway projects.

We also have ahas a plant division which owns and maintains a fleet of rail construction plant, including On Track Maintenance (OTM) plain line and S&C tampers, lightweight tampers, ballast regulators, Kirow rail mounted cranes, Road Rail Vehicles (RRV’s) excavator and crane lifting machines.
