VolkerFitzpatrick has been named as one of the preferred contractors for building and civil engineering work in Network Rail's Control Period Five (CP5). The project runs from 2014 to 2019. The framework agreement, which will start on 1st April 2014, is for the Anglia route, the largest of the geographic areas.
The work will involve delivering longer platforms for longer trains on key commuter routes, station enhancements, new footbridges to improve accessibility and upgrades to bridges, embankments and tunnels. Goal is to increase the resilience of the infrastructure in some of the most intensely-used parts of Britain's rail network.
Chris Evans, managing director of rail at VolkerFitzpatrick, said: "We are delighted to have been selected for the Anglia route on the CP5 Multi Functional Framework. Our collaborative relationship with the Network Rail team in the southern region has been key to the successful and safe delivery of our work over the last four years. We look forward to working with the team to develop a ‘better railway for a better Britain' in the future."
