Balfour Beatty awarded two-year extension for its London Underground Track Partnership
Balfour Beatty has been awarded a £170 million two-year extension to its Track Partnership Contract for London Underground.
Track Partnership, an alliance between Balfour Beatty Rail and London underground are responsible for delivering essential track renewal work across the London Underground network.
Balfour Beatty Rail was appointed to the original contract in 2010, which included an option to extend for another two years. The company will continue to provide design, labour, plant and materials, as well as surveying, supervision and management of the works. The works includes points & crossings and ballasted track renewal installation together with associated drainage, signalling traction power and conductor rail works.
The partnership extension shows Balfour Beatty’s continuous focus and dedication on innovative solutions that deliver sustainable, safer rail infrastructure at reduced lifecycle costs. Throughout the two-year extension, which takes the contract to March 2018, there will be a focus on enhancing efficiencies including measures which will see Project Managers given more accountability for driving down costs whilst continuing to safely deliver the highest standard of work.
Balfour Beatty Group Chief Executive, said: “With world-class expertise in track, electrification and power supply systems, Balfour Beatty Rail is a significant player in the UK rail infrastructure market. We have utilised these market-leading skills and expertise working with London Underground over the last 13 years. This extension is a clear sign of London Underground’s confidence in the capability of Balfour Beatty within the Track Partnership”.
At tusp we have worked with Balfour Betty on many projects including The Track Partnership and most recently as part of the Great Western Modernisation Route.
We were also invited to co ordinate a team away day and facilitated workshop at the end of last year which was very well received. We wish them great success with this latest contract extension and we look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.
