VolkerRail has secured three contracts on Network Rail's panel and programme framework, with a total value of £270 million. The contracts are part of Network Rail's extensive programme of enhancements and renewals to the London North Western and East Midlands routes over the next five years, consisting of 20 frameworks with a combined value of £1.6bn.
The three contracts VolkerRail will be working on, are the railway engineering panel contracts for the LNW South and LNW North region and the electrification and plant programme contract for LNW North.
The panel contracts are renewal and enhancement projects which include railway engineering, civil engineering and building projects. The programme contracts consist of renewal projects, and include property renewals, electrification and plant renewals, earthworks renewals and structure renewals.
Steve Cocliff, managing director of VolkerRail said: "The award of these frameworks represents a significant milestone for VolkerRail and will continue to showcase our ability to perform collaboratively with Network Rail and with a consolidated and strategically aligned supply chain."
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.
