Network Rail awarded six contracts totaling GBP 750 million (EUR 872.4 million) to deliver signalling and telecoms across the country. The contracts were awarded under the Control Period 6 (2019-2024).
The signalling and telecoms (S&T) frameworks, which are split into six geographical lots, have been awarded to VolkerRail Special Businesses (London North West), Atkins (Anglia, South East and Wessex), Linbrooke Services (London North East), Babcock Rail (Scotland), Colas Rail (Western) and Siemens Mobility (Wales).
The S&T framework awards are the first awards in a three-tier approach to signalling delivery for CP6. The remaining two tiers, minor and major signalling, targeted towards simple component replacement and major re-signalling and re-control respectively, will complete the three-tier strategy for CP6 signalling delivery when they are awarded in June 2019 and January 2020.
