A proud moment in Linbrooke Services Ltd history

Linbrooke Services are pleased to announce they have been awarded a significant framework on the CP7 Eastern Routes Partnership in a joint venture with Keltbray. The Lot 4 Distribution & Plant Framework is a 5-year framework forecast between £154m-£222m with options to extend to 10 years.

The Keltbray Linbrooke Partnership (KLP) combines expertise from two specialist areas in Rail with the ability to draw down further capability from both businesses. The partnership has formed to offer a unique solution aimed at renewing High and Low Voltage infrastructure for Network Rail in the Eastern Region in collaboration with other partners in the ERP.

Ben Lynch, Managing Director, Linbrooke Rail, said: “Winning a place in the Eastern Region Partnership with our trusted partner Keltbray is a true honour.  We have formed a great relationship and delivered complex projects together in the recent past, and I cannot wait for our respective businesses to unite and complement our individual capabilities.  We will build on previous delivery success to perform a key role in Network Rail’s Eastern Route Partnership”.

Darren James, Chief Executive Officer, Keltbray Group commented: “We are delighted to have been selected for this CP7 framework lot in partnership with Linbrooke. This is part of our strategic plan to position Keltbray and the Keltbray Linbrooke Partnership as a leading infrastructure services provider in the rail and broader decarbonised transport sector. It will see us strengthen our relationship with Network Rail, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in a highly collaborative manner. We are committed to working with Network Rail to create sustainable solutions that apply innovation and engineering excellence to enhance lives – including rail passengers and the communities where we work. These awards worth £250million for the first five-year tenure of the framework have lifted our overall orderbook to in excess of £1.5billion.”

The joint venture looks forward to enabling the bold vision and objectives of the Eastern Routes Partnership and delivering a safe and sustainable CP7 & CP8.

As a Generalist under Lot 4 Distribution & Plant the Framework scope covers:

– HV traction distribution works

– Traction derived signalling power supplies

– Lineside operational equipment and monitoring

– Low voltage and control equipment

Phill Price, Managing Director, Keltbray Infrastructure commented: “We are honoured to have been awarded these positions on such a prestigious framework for our valued client, Network Rail, demonstrating our long-term commitment to the rail sector. It was a real team effort across Keltbray and Linbrooke, and the framework will leverage our rail systems design, engineering and rail delivery capabilities across our whole business and strengthen our established, successful relationship with Linbrooke. We are looking forward to getting started and delivering safely and efficiently to benefit rail passengers across the Eastern route.”
