International management and construction consultancy, Gleeds, has been awarded a two-year professional service framework by train operator, Merseyrail.
Gleeds has been selected to provide CDMC, project and commercial management services for work that will support rail transport infrastructure in the Liverpool city region. One of the most intensively used networks in the UK, Merseyrail has over 800 train services daily and approximately 100,000 passenger journeys per weekday. Improvements will help reduce journey time, making the region more accessible for commuters and leisure travellers.
Merseyrail is managed by concession-holder, Merseytravel, which promotes integrated transport in the city region. Alongside regeneration work in the area, this will boost new business and jobs in the region.
Martin Smalley, Director and Head of Gleeds’ rail operations commented: “Effective infrastructure is integral to the growth and prosperity of the UK economy, so we are very pleased to have been appointed onto a framework that will help attract investment into the North West.”
