Case Study: Track Partnership

A great start for Axial and Balfour Beatty

Case Study – Integrated Track Team (London Underground Track Renewals)

Client – Balfour Beatty

April 2018 – January 2019

Value – £250m

Axial is delighted that our first collaboration with Balfour Beatty has been successful. Axial  supported this £250 Track Renewals contract with Bid Leadership and technical resources. Co-located with the tender team in Canary Wharf we have provided a high quality service from capture planning stage, through to Pre-qualification Questionnaire and finally through to ITT and post tender negotiation phases. We are hugely proud of the work done on this challenging tender which has drawn praise from our client Balfour Beatty and from their ultimate client Transport for London.

The track renewals contract will ensure the continued reliability of the 1,047 kilometer London Underground network; investing in critical assets and the delivery of strategic enhancements such as renewing 13 kilometers of ballasted track and associated drainage, signalling, traction power and rail conductor works in the first two years of a 10 year framework.

Axial’s detailed knowledge and experience of London Underground’s and mainline infrastructure and systems, as well as its commitment to championing innovation was instrumental in securing the contract.

Throughout the programme of works, Axial assisted Balfour Beatty in introducing new measures and technologies such as remote surveying systems and viewing software to generate significant efficiencies while continuing to safely deliver the highest standard of work and reducing any potential disruption to the travelling public.

What our client said

‘The bid leadership support that we received from Axial Projects, who supported us to deliver a complex track programme bid for TfL, was first class. We will definitely be using their services again and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the industry.’
