January 2019

Final multi-million-pound contracts awarded to deliver rail projects in Scotland and North East

CP6 contract wins

Network Rail has announced further multi-million-pound contract awards for Control Period 6 (2019-2024).

Geotech frameworks have been awarded to QTS (Scotland), £100m, and Story Contracting (London North East), £47m, as part of the procurement process.

The latest contract awards complete the procurement activity for Scotland and North East, which is anticipated to hold one of the largest work-banks for the coming five-year funding period.

Kris Kinnear, Interim Regional Director for SNE, said "Work to renew our infrastructure is increasingly important to improve reliability for our passengers, and making sure we have the right suppliers to deliver those improvements is paramount. We look forward to working closely with our supply chain to build on the progress that has already been made and ultimately, build a better railway for our customers.”

Scotland and North East have awarded five-year contracts, with an option of two-year extensions on the Geotech framework. Kris added, “Significant five-year contracts not only benefit our key supply chain partners, but the thousands of companies who work for them too, providing them with the surety they need to invest in their people, innovation and value for money.”

Alan McLeish, QTS Managing Director, said: “We are exceptionally proud of the collaborative work QTS has carried out during the last control period, with some outstanding geotechnical projects delivered across Scotland. It is a testament to the hard work of our team during the CP5 contract, and the strong relationship that we have built with Network Rail, that has allowed us to be successful in this CP6 tender process.”

“Our expertise and commitment to finding further efficiencies for Network Rail by using innovative plant and methods, stands us in excellent stead to continue providing a high standard of work over the next five years.”
