VolkerRail is one of the UK’s leading multi-disciplinary railway infrastructure contractors, with a successful track record of delivering projects on the UK’s national rail network. Our detailed understanding of the industry come from years of experience on main, branch and light rail networks; freight lines, depots, sidings and private industrial locations.

Our skills range covers every aspect of permanent way renewals, maintenance and track construction, overhead line electrification, HV and LV power distribution and signalling. This includes design, plan, supply and installation works, which can be delivered either individually or as part of a fully integrated project; all of which are enhanced by our fleet of plant equipment, including OTM and S&C tampers, Kirow rail mounted cranes, ballast regulators, beaver lightweight tampers, RRVs and Colmar lifting machines, as well as an array of rail mounted support and inspection vehicles, specialist welding equipment and an extensive range of small plant and equipment.

Our flexible approach is demonstrated by the scope and complexities of the projects we undertake, which range from small contracts to joint ventures and alliance projects in excess of £1bn.
