Panel Framework

From 2015 until 2020 VolkerRail will be completing enhancement and renewal projects, which include railway and civil engineering, as part of Network Rail’s North Panel Framework.

This framework forms 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. 

Locations of work include:

  • Acton
  • Bolton
  • Blackburn
  • Cannock
  • Coventry
  • Darwen
  • Leamington Spa.

The work delivered under this framework represents a significant portion of the £38bn Network Rail will invest over CP5 to maintain and improve Britain's railway, which currently sees four million passenger journeys and thousands of tonnes of freight transported every single day.
