Balfour Beatty and VGC have agreed a new five-year contract. It involves supporting Network Rail throughout the country, including all of Balfour Beatty’s rail projects and CP6 framework programme commitments.
Working from the country’s major rail depots in Doncaster, Crewe, Preston, Peterborough, Birmingham and London, VGC will be part of the Central Rail System Alliance. This will be responsible for track maintenance and enhancement work across the rail network.
The Integrated Track Team working on London Underground infrastructure, of which VGC has been a part since 2003, will be incorporated into the new arrangements, on a three-year contract.
“We are very pleased with this agreement,” said Chris Ryan, operations director. “It builds on our previous successes on Network Rail infrastructure, and provides sustainable work for our teams across the country.
VGC’s offices in Doncaster and Birmingham will play an important role in managing the workforce involved on the contract.
