Bam Nuttall, Murphy and Osborne land Network Rail CP6 deals

Bam Nuttall, J Murphy & Sons and Osborne have been awarded three Network Rail contracts for Control Period 6.

RouteCP6 renewals estimated valueCP6 enhancements



Up to £810m



Up to 1.06bn



Up to £850m



Up to £2.72bn

The contracts, worth at least £4bn, for the period ranging from 2019-2024 are for the framework to deliver renewals and enhancements in Anglia, the South-east and Wessex.

The multi-discipline framework will deliver projects of varying value, including stations, buildings and civils, electrifications, power, signalling, telecommunications and track. This is initially in place for a five-year period but has the option of three one-year extensions if required, which could see the value of the contracts rise to £7bn.

J Murphy will work in Anglia, Bam Nuttall in the South-east and Osborne in Wessex.

Two of the three successful bidders, Bam Nuttall and Osborne, already work in the region and have delivered schemes including a 100-hour blockade to replace a life-expired bridge in Wandsworth and the upgrade of Shoreham Viaduct.

Network Rail southern region commercial director Cameron Burns said: “Over the last few years we have made a shift towards working more collaboratively and closer to fewer key contractors, which has allowed us to deliver major improvements for passengers successfully and safely.

“Given that we are delivering in some of Britain’s busiest stations and on some of the most used routes into the capital, our ability to upgrade the railway with minimal impact on passengers is increasingly important.”
