South East construction group wins Network Rail contract

Interserve has won a new five-year facilities management contract with Network Rail worth £65 million.

Interserve will deliver facilities services such as waste management, landscaping, pest control, adverse weather management and washroom services across 11 of Network Rail’s managed stations in London, Reading and Bristol. These include eight of the UK’s 10 busiest stations.

The new partnership marks the first time facilities services have been delivered by a single provider, with Interserve replacing multiple service-providers. The new contract builds upon Interserve’s existing relationship with Network Rail, which has included providing cleaning services across the organisation’s estate for the last five years.

Adrian Ringrose, chief executive at Interserve, said: “A total of three billion passengers pass through the transport environments we support, from airports to major city centre rail termini.

“It’s an exciting time for the UK rail network and we look forward to supporting operational delivery at Network Rail’s key stations, as well as playing our part in enhancing the passenger and train operating company experience.”
