Network Rail has awarded framework agreements to cover its programme of civil examinations and assessments for the next five years.
All the agreements are zero-sum with a workbank of £300m over the course of the next funding period - Control Period 5.
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.”
A single-supplier zero-value framework has been agreed with Amey to cover civil examinations across the entire network, with the exception of the London North Western route, which is delivering its examinations programme using in-house teams.
Five zero-value civil assessments frameworks have been agreed, to cover each of Network Rail’s routes.
These are: 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.
