Civil frameworks awarded for CP5

Network Rail has awarded £300m civils framework agreements for the next five years.

The zero-value contracts will cover civil examinations across the entire network, apart from the London North Western route, which will use in-house teams.

The framework agreements go to: Anglia, Aecom and Amey; Kent, Amey; London North Eastern and East Midlands, Aecom and Amey; LNW, Aecom, SKM and Opus; Scotland, Aecom; Sussex, Wales, Wessex and Western all WSP.

Network Rail’s director of contracts and procurement, Ian Sexton, said: “Monitoring the condition of our infrastructure – including bridges, tunnels, embankments and culverts – is a vital part of keeping Britain’s railways safe.

“By working with these trusted suppliers over the next five years we can continue to improve and build on the knowledge we have of our network.”

Mel Ewell, Amey’s chief executive, said: “Continuing our successful examinations and assessments relationship with Network Rail is great news for our business. The scope of the new contracts spanning the next five years builds on Amey’s and Network Rail’s track record of strong performance by making better use of technology and introducing more efficient ways of working. Through even greater collaboration we will and create an even safer and more reliable civils infrastructure."
