The right skills and expertise will be needed for major track works

Network Rail has announced the final preferred bidder for delivery of track upgrade works for the next decade in Central England. It includes track, points, and associated overhead lines and signalling, and is worth an estimated over £1.5bn over 10 years.

The latest contract award covers work in London North West, London North East and East Midlands routes and has been awarded to Balfour Beatty, TSO and SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business. This follows an announcement earlier this year confirming Babcock Rail, Arup and Arcadis as the preferred bidders for Scotland and Colas Rail and AECOM for the South, completing the full picture of rail system work in the UK.

NSAR knows that major track works will require human resource with the appropriate skills and expertise to deliver. NSAR’s Skills & Training division offers a range of services to assist in developing and training the right people to support employers embarking on major projects.
