Jarvis dropped from Network Rail framework as other firms win extension

Network Rail has extended the contracts of three of the firms on its track renewal framework but the fourth firm, troubled contractor Jarvis, will not be replaced.

AmeyColas, Babcock Rail and Balfour Beatty will all take a share of the rail operator’s planned £3.5 billion track renewal investment plan until 31 March 2014.

A Network Rail spokesperson told Construction News that the contracts were due to end shortly and that optional renewals with the other firms had been exercised.

Jarvis was placed into administration last week, citing a decline in rail work and difficulties with lenders.
