Vital Rail wins Underground staff supply contract

Vital Rail has won a major contract with TfL-owned Tube Lines Limited for the provision of labour to support track maintenance and upgrade works.

The contract involves the provision of skilled track staff required to carry out the maintenance and upgrade of the permanent way track assets on the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines, and part of the Metropolitan Line of the London Underground.

The maintenance and upgrade of these assets is the responsibility of Tube Lines Ltd.

The works are split into two main streams, Maintenance Works and Capital Project Works, including track reconditioning, pit block replacement, track refurbishment in tunnels and open sections, conductor rail replacement, points and crossings, enhanced track renewals, life extension works, rolling vehicle access requirements and train arrestors.

The award of this contract extends the long-term successful working relationship between Vital Rail and Tube Lines Ltd.

Says Paul Crompton, Vital Rail’s Regional Director (South), “I am delighted with the contract award. It continues the relationship which we have built up with Tube Lines over the past five or six years, and we hope to continue to support them in the future.”

Vital Rail, part of the Manchester-based Vital Services Group, is a major support services provider, completing enhancement, renewal and maintenance projects for the Rail, Light Rail and Underground sectors.
