Decentralization has allowed us to form alliances with our partners to bring train operations closer to line operations. After an extensive tender phase, Network Rail awarded the southern rail and rail alliances to Colas Rail and AECOM and, in Scotland, to Babcock Rail, Arup and Arcadis. This notice is subject to the condition of finalization and agreement of the contractual conditions, the acquisition being currently subject to a standstill period. “As one of the UK`s leading rail infrastructure providers, Balfour Beatty is proud to be part of the alliance designed to ensure the reliability of the UK rail network,” said Leo Quinn, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty. Network Rail has divided the next decade of rail modernisation into three geographical alliances, the Northern Alliance in Scotland, the Central Alliance (which includes London and the Midlands) and the South East, West and Welsh Alliance. Over the next 10 years, the rail alliances will carry out work on the UK rail infrastructure, mainly in line with NR`s Control Period 6 (2019-2024) and Control Period 7 (2024-2029). Normally, almost five million journeys are made in the UK and more than 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on the British Railway to commute daily, visit friends and loved ones and take them home safely every day. Our role is to provide a safe and reliable railway, which is why we carefully manage and supply thousands of projects every year that are part of the multi-billion pound railway upgrade plan to expand and expand the country`s rail network to meet the enormous growth and demand of railways – a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years. United Kingdom: Infrastructure manager Network Rail has selected preferred bidders for two of its three alliance contracts for the rail system. Among the most important framework contracts awarded for control period 6 during the years 2019-24, the contracts were designed to bring together NR, planners and contractors to do what NR is “everything necessary to operate the rail system, including tracks, switches, overhead contact lines and signalling”.
