NETWORK RAIL has awarded a further three framework contracts for renewals and enhancements during Control Period 6 (2019-24).

J. Murphy & Sons has won the contract for Anglia Route, with BAM Nuttall securing the deal for South East Route and Geoffrey Osborne Ltd for Wessex. NR says the companies will act as strategic delivery partners throughout CP6, with the contracts running for five years but with the option of three one-year extensions if required. The frameworks will deliver projects of varying value, including stations, buildings and civils, electrification, power, signalling, telecommunications and track. Together, the contracts for the three regions have an estimated value for renewals of up to £1.69 billion and for enhancements of up to £2.72 billion.

NR’s Infrastructure Projects division organises itself into four regional areas, with the Southern region the second to announce its contract awards following Scotland and North East, which awarded two lots within its framework to Story Contracting and AmcoGiffen (p20, last month). Yet to announce CP6 awards are Central and Western and Wales.
