Balfour Beatty has been awarded a £170m two-year extension to its Track Partnership contract for London Underground.
Track Partnership, an alliance between Balfour Beatty Rail and London Underground, is responsible for delivering track renewal work across the London Underground network.
Balfour Beatty Rail was appointed to the initial contract in 2010, which included an option to extend for a further two years. The company will continue to provide design, labour, plant, and materials, as well as surveying, supervision and management of the works. The scope of works includes points & crossings and ballasted track renewal installation together with associated drainage, signalling, traction power and conductor rail works.
The two-year extension takes the contract to March 2018.
Balfour Beatty chief executive Leo Quinn 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.”
