“With world-class expertise in track, electrification and power supply systems, Balfour Beatty Rail is a significant player in the UK rail infrastructure market. We have utilised these market-leading skills and expertise working with London Underground over the last 13 years.

Throughout the extension, which takes the contract to March 2018, there will be a focus on delivering innovative solutions for a more sustainable and safer rail infrastructure at reduced lifecycle costs.
