Our railway engineering capabilities range from the re-establishment of disused railways, construction of urban mass transit systems and high speed mainline rail systems; as well as large scale track renewals, signalling, electrification, high voltage power distribution and line side civil engineering schemes.

Our in-house specialist project teams provide fully integrated solutions to the rail sector. We have the expertise needed to drive innovation and efficiency during project development phases and our detailed knowledge of rail maintenance, infrastructure system performance and renewal and installation techniques enables us to offer project specific optimisation, through reduced whole life costs.

VolkerRail also engages in collaborative working agreements as a proven strategy for delivering complex railway projects. Alliances and joint ventures are an important part of this strategy for success. We have built strong relationships with other major contractors and together with our strengthened offerings, combined skills and enhanced financial strength, we have delivered some of the biggest multi-million pound construction projects in the rail industry over the last ten years.

With the added support and skill base of our sister companies within VolkerWessels UK, we have the knowledge and resources to complete any rail infrastructure project in the UK. This is underpinned by the backing of the wider VolkerWessels group
