Aecom and Amey among winners to provide examination services to the rail network provider

Aecom, WSP and Amey are among the firms to have won a place on £300m of Network Rail civil examinations frameworks.

The winning firms will work with the railway provider over the next five years to monitor the condition of the railway structures such as bridges, tunnels and embankments.

Amey has been appointed to a role covering civil examinations across the whole network while six other local frameworks have also been appointed.

Network Rail’s director of contracts and procurement, Ian Sexton, said: “Monitoring the condition of our infrastructure is a vital part of keeping Britain’s railways safe.

“By working with these trusted suppliers over the next five years we can continue to improve and build on the knowledge we have of our network.”

A single-supplier zero-value framework has been agreed with Amey to cover civil examinations across the entire network, with the exception of the London North Western route, which is delivering its examinations programme using in-house teams.
