National On-Track Machine Contract


Network Rail's national delivery service team awarded VolkerRail a seven year framework contract for the supply of 11 on-track machines under the "National On-Track Machine Contract".

The contract, provides Network Rail with nine tamping machines, two ballast regulators, experienced machine operators and the management services of the plant division's support services team.

VolkerRail were awarded the National On-Track Machine Contract following its previous contract awarded in 2009, which was extended to reach 2011. This award has the potential to provide over one million man hours of work and 20,000 machine shifts.

This seven year framework is for the London north east territory and replaces the previously shorter contracts for track alignment and ballast formation, allowing for longer term delivery strategies; taking into account investment in people, equipment and year on year efficiencies.
