Network Rail CP5 Programme Budget Tops £35bn

As a steel fabrication business that is steadily building an enviable reputation by reliably building and installing steel structures for the UK Rail sector, DMG is delighted to learn that the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) has issues there final determination of Network Rail’s Control Period 5  (2014 – 2019) with a budget of £35.5bn.Even without HS2 this programme will ensure that the many skilled suppliers to the rail sector can make sound investments in machinery and staff based on at least a 5 year return. Although pricing will undoubtedly remain very keen this scale of works that can only be delivered by seasoned vetted suppliers will at the very least stop the ‘race to the bottom’ that has sadly seen so many of our competitors fall by the wayside in recent years.With the highest level of investment being put into our rail network since the Victorian era there simply hasn’t been a better time to be involved in delivering projects for the rail sector.
