Waterman win major rail contract
Waterman have been appointed on three major design services frameworks lots for Network Rail’s CP6 as part of a £48 billion investment programme into Britain’s rail network.
The five-year framework, with the potential extension for further three years, for the Consents and Environment (C&E) discipline, will be supported by a new structure in Network Rail which aims to refocus and putting the needs of passengers and freight first. The appointment will see Waterman’s team provide multidiscipline engineering and environmental services for rail projects across three regions; North West and Scotland, North East, and South West. Waterman is the only firm to secure C&E frameworks lots across three of the four regions.
Manoj Gupta, Rail Sector Lead for Waterman, said; “We are very excited about this major win and looking forward to making this a success delivering environmentally sustainable and safer infrastructure.”
Neil Humphrey, Waterman’s Chief Operating Officer, commented; “We are delighted to be part of this prestigious framework with Network Rail and look forward to continue our support across the regions. Our highly experienced team of specialists will provide a robust platform to further grow our railway capability in the railway sector.”
