The construction giant said its four-year extension to 2014 to an existing track renewal framework in the south east will be worth £56m this year with a further £115m to be awarded provided agreed performance targets are met.
Planned work involves the delivery of plain line rail and switches and crossings at junctions with associated signalling, electrification and drainage work in the Wessex, Sussex, Kent and Anglia regions.
Balfour has also secured a four-year contract worth in excess of £50m for the grinding of plain line rail across the UK, including the operation and maintenance of six of Network Rail’s fleet of rail grinders.
The hat-trick is completed by the £27m Paisley corridor improvement project in Glasgow.
Work involves the construction of a new third running line and associated overhead electrification additions and modifications, as well as the remodelling of a number of approach lines. The Paisley corridor runs from Gower Street Junction to Arkleston Junction. The job is due for completion in 2012.
Balfour Beatty Chief Executive, Ian Tyler, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded these contracts by Network Rail for whom we have worked since its formation in 2002 on a number of high-profile projects. These further contract awards demonstrate the strength of our partnership and we look forward to delivering a first-class service to Network Rail.”
