Amey has today announced it has been appointed to both the Engineering and Construction Services, and the Programme and Project Management Services Frameworks, across Network Rail’s North West & Central regions.
A key focus for Amey will be collaborating with Network Rail to drive down CO2 emissions, enhance recycling and minimise waste. This will be supported by Amey’s decarbonisation expertise and innovations from across its rail, highways and buildings portfolio.
The initial 3-year frameworks serve Network Rail’s North West & Central (NW&C) region, and the life-cycle engineering firm will provide a range of consulting services across a variety of projects, from large multidisciplinary, complex projects to single discipline asset renewals. The work will also involve work with key stakeholders such as HS2, local authorities, train and freight operating companies.
Speaking on the announcement, Alex Gilbert, Managing Director, Amey Consulting, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to both of Network Rail’s Professional Services Framework in the NW&C. The North West & Central region is of critical importance to the UK, linking major economic hubs of London, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. We look forward to working with Network Rail in growing and maintaining a sustainable railway, using our consulting capabilities to decarbonise our network.”
Comprising of 571 stations, the North West and Central region sees 246.5 million annual rail passenger journeys. The region accounts for 24% of Britain’s railway.
